October 8-14 is National Coming Out Week, and UHS is celebrating along with Spectrum Center and others in U-M Student Life. Check out Spectrum Center’s calendar of events happening on campus.

We encourage our LGBTQ+ patients to discuss your sexual orientation and gender identity - and how you think they may influence your health and well-being - with your health care provider.

You can find information about discussing sexual and gender identity in health care settings in the "Do Ask, Do Tell" brochure (PDF) from the Fenway Institute.

For more information about how UHS serves LGBTQ+ students and other patients, please visit For LGBTQ Patients.
