LGBT and Tobacco-Free Pride

  • Smoke-Free Pride
33% of LGBT individuals smoke in comparison to 20% of the general U.S. population.

The Southeastern Pennsylvania Tobacco Control Project and Health Promotion Council partner with the LGBT Center of Central PA, William Way, and Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center to reduce tobacco-related burdens among the LGBTQA community; a disparitely impacted population.

  • Assistance planning a smoke-free event or Pride festival
  • Tobacco Dependence Treatment (quit smoking) coaching and nicotine replacement in various clinical and community settings. Call 1-800-Quit Now and ask for classes near you.
