Lyon-Martin Health Services, which has made health care accessible to thousands of women, queer, and trans people in San Francisco, is being threatened with imminent closure. The clinic's board of directors say it's financially impossible to keep the clinic open, but a community that knows health care is both essential and widely unaffordable - and, for many women, queer, and trans people, often traumatizing in conventional settings - is rallying to save the clinic. Fundraising events are scheduled for this weekend in San Francisco. And donations of money, time, and other resources are welcome from anywhere.
As one of the organizers says, "If Lyon-Martin health services shuts down, it will be a major step towards San Francisco becoming entirely uninhabitable for low-income queers and trans people." Event info after the jump.
