About

Through direct advocacy, Our Bodies Florida works with campaigns, activists, and allies across the state and beyond to protect gender-affirming and inclusive health care for LGBTQIA+ Floridians. We support evidence-based policymaking and legislation, uplift grassroots’ engagement and mobilization around LGBTQIA+ action, and educate on the importance of health equity and health justice.

Our Bodies Florida was formed by Tim Frie, a health equity and mental health activist and advocate for trauma-informed care and policy. After the devastating results of the 2020 Florida state elections and the rampant attacks on the health and well-being of the LGBTQIA+ community in the two legislative sessions that followed, he knew something more had to be done. Tim formed Our Bodies Florida to empower, educate, and multiply the force of LGBTQIA+ equity and rights in the state of Florida.

Our Values

We believe LGBTQIA+ Floridians deserve access to gender-affirming and inclusive healthcare (including mental health care) and health education.

We acknowledge that for LGBTQIA+ folks who are BIPOC, disabled, mentally ill, have a chronic disease, are unhoused, are immigrants, have experienced trauma, or are a member of any marginalized and minoritized population, health and wellness opportunities are insufficient.

We see the future of Florida as a state where health equity and health justice are universal, and can only be achieved by encouraging grassroots activism and advocacy in conjunction to electing progressive, down-ballot candidates.

Issues

Education

We work with candidates, office-holders, and community leaders to educate about the challenges, deficiencies, and opportunities surrounding fully inclusive health equity.

Fundraising

We financially support down-ballot, progressive candidates who share our values and dedication to opposing dangerous Florida policies like the “Don’t Say Gay” bill.

Mobilization

We are building a coalition of activists and advocates who see health equity as integral to the strength and wellness of not just Florida, but our entire nation.
