Millions of LGBTQ people across the country have benefited from the Affordable Care Act. Many have gotten health insurance for the first time, gotten covered as a family for the first time, received financial help to make coverage more affordable, and accessed covered health services, including transition-related care, for the first time. Use Pride month to show that the Affordable Care Act is working for our communities and to push back against Congress’ efforts to repeal or weaken the law. Learn more at out2enroll.org.
