Podcast Interviews With Those In-the-Know About Heath Literacy


Biologic Sex, Gender Identity and Expression, and Other Issues to Consider When Communicating About Health (HLOL #214)

Jaime Collins describes herself as a passionately curious woman with a deep love of humanity. Collins says that it was through a life-long journey of self-discovery that she learned and unlearned the societal dictates that for years had kept her imprisoned in a gender that wasn’t hers. Eventually Collins learned to love and accept herself and at 52 years old, came out as transgender. In addition to her career as a healthcare marketing and communications professional Collins is a wife, parent, grandparent, athlete, entrepreneur, and steadfast advocate for the LGBTQIA community.

In this podcast, Jamie Collins and Helen Osborne talk about:

  • Meaning of the acronym, LGBTQIA. Commonly used to refer to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and/or questioning, intersex, and asexual and/or ally.
  • Another important acronym is SOGIE. This is about the spectrum of sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression.
  • Why all these issues matter in health communication.
  • Ways that organizations and individuals can be more welcoming, inclusive, culturally competent, and equitable.
