Breaking Down Barriers for Better LGBTQ+ Health - Stewart O'Callaghan
Play • 19 min

Diagnosed with a rare form of cancer in their late twenties, Stewart O’Callaghan was determined to make a difference for others. After the complexity of navigating the healthcare system as an LGBTQ+ patient, Stewart set up Live Through This, the UK’s only charity that supports and advocates for LGBTQ+ people affected by cancer. Stewart discusses hopes and ambitions for the future and explains why people shouldn’t fear “getting it wrong.”

“There is a willingness to change, but a fear of getting it wrong. And I see this across research and health and third sector. I think a lot of people now understand that there is a duty to be representative of the general population or minoritized populations and there is a duty to have this intersectional lens.”
