Liz Margolies, LCSW, is the founder and executive director of the National LGBT Cancer Network, Based in NYC, the Network focuses on education, training, advocacy and support.
Did you know that the LGBT population has a higher risk rate for cancer? We are going to talk about healthcare barriers that they face, what can be done to reduce that risk and the training programs that are provided for healthcare providers. Also we will talk about how we can come together as a community and take better care of ourselves by taking steps together for preventative health measures. Yes - literally walking together! We will talk about what it means to be an LGBT cancer survivor and their special needs vs. the needs of the mainstream cancer survivor population.
Many LGBT survivors do not feel welcome or understood in mainstream support groups and transgender survivors have been especially excluded. The National LGBT Cancer Network offers FREE online support forums to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender cancer survivors. We will be covering the customized support programs the network offers which are tailored specifically to our needs.
Liz is also a psychotherapist in private practice, specializing in trauma, loss, health disparities and sexuality. Liz is also a blogger for the Huffington Post and helps curate the LGBT Wellness page on the Gay Voices vertical.

How Do I Know If Their Love is Real or Am I Being Played?
So how can you tell if someone you’re dating likes you back as much as you do them? While it can be difficult to spot an opportunist, there are some signs you can keep a look out for that can reassure you that your new guy / girl reciprocates your feelings of positive anticipation about what “could be”. And that is actually the #1 key to determining if a person is into you—reciprocation.
Does he take proactive steps to try and meet your needs?
Does he show interest and enthusiasm in getting to know who you are and what you stand for?
Does he on occasion make sacrifices because he wants to do something that would make you feel good?
Does he initiate non-sexual affection and physical touch?
Does he initiate time and energy to spend quality time with you?
Does he communicate his thoughts and feelings with you and is he willing to make compromises when necessary?
Does he light up when he sees you and make regular eye-contact?
Does he want to hear about your goals and dreams for the future?
When you’re having a bad day, does he put things going on in his life to the side to devote time and attention to providing you with some tender-loving-care and support?
Does he smile at you a lot and is he playful with you?
Does he seem to care about how you think of him?
Does he make conscious efforts to try and please you?
