HHHRC Executive Director Heather Lusk received a “Business of Pride” Award from Pacific Business News on October 21 at a ceremony at the ‘Alohilani Resort in Waikiki. Other awardees included Dean Hamer, Joy Barua, and Patricio Battani.

Pacific Business News asked, “What is currently still a barrier for LGBTQ community members in Hawaii, and how would you solve it?” She answered, in part, “Hawaiʻi still struggles with the provision of culturally appropriate health services, especially behavioral health support programs specific to the trans and LGBQ+ communities…. It’s vital to develop formal policies and fund projects that are specific to the needs of the trans and LGBQ+ communities. HHHRC developed a smoking cessation program targeted to sexual and gender minorities called Hawaii’s Last Drag, supported by the Hawaiʻi Community Foundation. We also provide outreach services to trans and LGBQ+ youth who are at risk of homelessness.”

Congratulations Heather!
