Orange County STD symptoms.

At the Radiant Health Centers medical clinic in Irvine, STD testing and treatment are a significant part of the work we do. With reports indicating a consistent rise in STD rates in recent years, offering support to Orange County’s LGBTQ+ community has never been more important. Now more than ever, STD education, testing and treatment are crucial to turn the tide against this concerning trend.

How Do You Get STDs?

The CDC’s most recent data highlighted a 7% rise in STDs between 2017 and 2021, with no indications that this trend is lessening. However, to change this trajectory it’s important to understand how an STD is transmitted.

Sexually transmitted diseases are typically caused by bacteria, viruses or parasites that are passed from one person to another during sexual contact. Unprotected sexual contact via vaginal, anal or oral sex without a condom or dental dam is the most common way an STD is transmitted.

It is possible for nonsexual transmission of STDs, with skin-to-skin contact potentially causing herpes and HPV. In addition, sharing needles can spread infections like HIV and hepatitis, while some STDs can be passed from mother to child during pregnancy.

What Are the Common STD Symptoms?

First, recognizing STD symptoms is a valuable way to prevent transmission and also get fast treatment. However, be aware that many people are asymptomatic, yet still capable of spreading an infection.

  • Itching or burning in the genital area.
  • Sores or bumps around the genitals.
  • Discharge from the penis or vagina.
  • Pain in the abdomen or pain during sex.
  • A high temperature and flu-like symptoms.

Getting Tested for STDs

STD testing allows each individual to take control of their sexual health. But while STDs can be found in people of all ages, only limited numbers will get regular testing. To find a clinic in the local vicinity, conduct a search for STD testing near me. Having an LGBTQ+-friendly location like Radiant Health Centers can make all the difference, and increase the likelihood of testing becoming a regular and helpful routine.

How Are STDs Treated?

Alongside education and testing, STD treatment is pivotal in reducing transmission in the LGBTQ+ community. And as we have seen with HIV testing and treatment, significant change is only possible when effective healthcare is readily accessible.

STDs like chlamydia, gonorrhea, herpes and syphilis all require a targeted treatment approach. And while many avoid treatment because there is no sign of an issue (or there’s a minor, “ignorable” symptom), more than likely, future health repercussions will become evident. At Radiant Health Centers we welcome the LGBTQ+ community to visit us for testing – we put our commitment to reduce STD transmission into practice every day.

Make-a-Will Month Orange County.

August marks the return of Make-a-Will Month – an important reminder of the need to create or update your will. This occasion also provides an opportunity to leave a legacy by donating to the LGBTQ+ community in Orange County. And as many Americans delay the estate planning process, this month serves as a gentle reminder of the benefits of creating a will for your loved ones and beneficiaries.

What Is Make-a-Will Month?

Make-a-Will Month is dedicated to raising awareness of the importance of creating a will. While most people are mindful of the need to organize their financial affairs, fewer have actually taken the steps to safeguard those assets.

In fact, a recent Caring.com survey found that while 64% of Americans believe having a will is important, only 34% actually have an estate plan. During August, individuals and organizations are encouraged to spread awareness of the benefits of estate planning.

Why Do You Need a Will?

Without a will, the courts will determine the distribution of a person’s estate. Family members and loved ones could easily miss out on the assets and financial support that the deceased person had actually intended.

In addition, many people choose to donate to good causes through their estate. As an LGBTQ-friendly healthcare home in Orange County, we have been generously supported with contributions through wills and trusts. Make-a-Will Month is the perfect time to consider where you’d like your assets to go – and secure your wishes via a legal document.

How to Start Creating a Will

Creating a will is not as difficult as many people think. Here are some tips to get started.

  • Create a list of all your assets.
  • Consider the beneficiary designations of your assets.
  • Review an existing will and make any necessary changes.
  • Choose a trusted executor to carry out the terms of the will.

Support LGBTQ+ Healthcare With a Donation

Legacy giving is an opportunity to support the causes closest to your heart and make a lasting contribution. At Radiant Health Centers, the planned giving of our donors has indeed created a lasting impact on the Orange County LGBTQ+ community.

From our stigma-free, inclusive HIV and medical treatments to the growth of our counseling and youth programs, this support enables us to continue reducing health disparities. As part of our legacy giving program we welcome donations and gifts made via a will or trust, whether as a beneficiary of retirement assets or other investments. During Make-a-Will Month, please consider giving through your will, or by donating to Radiant Health Centers here.

Orange County LGBTQ+ Healthcare and Social Services

Radiant Health Centers provides safe, accessible health services and counseling for the Orange County LGBTQ+ community. Please consider supporting our continued efforts to deliver first-class health and social care with a donation. Contact our medical clinic by calling (949) 809-5700, or request an appointment now.

AIDS Walk Orange County 2023.

On the morning of Saturday, October 7, 2023 at 8:30 a.m., Fountain Valley’s Mile Square Regional Park will once again host the much-awaited AIDS Walk Orange County 2023. Returning for its 37th year, this annual event is an occasion to show kindness and solidarity with those affected by HIV/AIDS. And with the support of Orange County’s LGBTQ+ community, Radiant Health Centers will raise funds to make lasting improvements in healthcare services in our area.

Take Part in AIDS Walk Orange County 2023

Prepare for a day filled with community spirit, as AIDS Walk Orange County promises a series of exciting activities. Alongside the “fun walk,” participants can look forward to live performances, thrilling games and an extensive vendor fair. Participants can walk solo, team up with friends, or use the opportunity to remember loved ones. And in the spirit of friendship and unity, the community will get together to support those most in need.

Making a Real Difference With Radiant Health Centers

Funds gathered from the AIDS Walk are a lifeline for Radiant Health Centers, allowing us to offer essential services to the LGBTQ+ community and those living with HIV/AIDS. Each step taken and each dollar donated helps with comprehensive healthcare and supportive services, and underscores the importance of each participant’s contribution.

Become a Community Sponsor in the Fight Against HIV/AIDS

Community sponsorship of AIDS Walk Orange County is more than a show of support for the fight against HIV/AIDS. It’s also a powerful statement about your organization’s dedication to social responsibility, and a tangible way to boost workforce engagement.

Encouraging employees to participate improves morale, fosters teamwork – and allows your company to make a profound, lasting impact on those affected by HIV/AIDS.

Reflecting on the Success of AIDS Walk 2022

Last year, AIDS Walk Orange County 2022 raised over $117,000 – a clear demonstration of the generosity and commitment of the Orange County community. With the backing of our friends and donors, we hope to surpass that amount in 2023 to amplify our support for those in need.

Thanks to the generosity of attendees, donors and sponsors, Radiant Health Centers can continue to deliver first-class health and social care services for our LGBTQ+ community. Those affected by HIV/AIDS can receive the treatment, nutrition and guidance needed to live a healthy life – and we can come together to end the HIV epidemic once and for all.

Join Us for AIDS Walk Orange County 2023

Please join us for this year’s AIDS Walk in Orange County, and consider donating to support health and social services for the LGBTQ+ community. When you need help or guidance with HIV and STD testing, counseling and primary care, call (949) 809-5700 or request an appointment today.

Cultural competence in Orange County healthcare.

In an effort to address the many disparities in healthcare, cultural competence has taken center stage. As Orange County’s largest LGBTQ+ medical clinic, we have always worked to address barriers to quality care. But with healthcare inequalities still persisting for many groups, more must be done to deliver a higher quality of care. Inclusive care is the foundation that ensures access to personalized care and better health outcomes.

What Is Cultural Competence in Healthcare?

Cultural competence in healthcare is the ability to show consideration to people from diverse walks of life. To be culturally competent, medical providers learn how to communicate with and show sensitivity to individuals with different social and cultural backgrounds. The goal of this approach is to ensure that patients receive non-judgmental care that is tailored to their unique requirements.

Why Culturally Competent Healthcare Matters

Fundamentally, cultural competence in healthcare is about ensuring healthcare equality for everyone. However, as each person or group has different needs and health challenges, cultural competence does go beyond providing attentive healthcare. By understanding the LGBTQ+ community and other groups, providers can deliver a higher quality of care without false assumptions, discrimination or bias.

Inclusive care is a pressing need that requires a strategic approach, as many in the community are still struggling to find an LGBTQ-friendly healthcare provider in Orange County. Cultural competency training empowers medical providers with the understanding and skills to deliver stigma-free care that offers solid benefits for patients.

Cultural competence in healthcare aims to reduce health disparities for a cross-section of groups, incorporating race, gender, religion, cultural beliefs and more. For the LGBTQ+ community these challenges make themselves known in many ways, as shown by statistics from The Trevor Project in the list below.

  • 60% of LGBTQ+ youth needing mental health care could not access it.
  • 93% of transgender youth were worried about being denied gender-affirming medical care.
  • 45% of LGBTQ+ youth considered suicide in the past year.

Strategies for Providing LGBTQ+ Cultural Competence in Healthcare

Delivering culturally competent healthcare services requires an adaptive approach allowing response to each patient’s needs. Some common principles of inclusive care are as follows.

  • Acceptance of diversity in beliefs, lifestyle and values.
  • Not asking intrusive questions that are unnecessary for providing care.
  • Educating staff on best practices and non-judgmental communication.
  • Learning common LGBTQ+-specific physical and mental health challenges.
  • Using inclusive and gender-neutral language in communications.
  • Discussing and providing education on preventive care to live a healthy life.
  • An understanding of issues in the LGBTQ+ community (discrimination, harassment, HIV, substance abuse, etc.).
  • Providing access to LGBTQ+ counseling and mental health support.

National HIV Testing Day in Irvine

June 27, 2023 is the return of National HIV Testing Day, and Radiant Health Centers is proud to offer our support once again. As a long-established HIV testing and treatment provider in Orange County, we have been working to end the HIV/AIDS epidemic since our earliest days. And with so much still to do, this day is a much-needed opportunity to come together as a community and support knowing your status, while spreading awareness of the issues.

What Is National HIV Testing Day?

National HIV Testing Day has been observed annually around the country since 1995. This day is meant to encourage HIV testing and raise awareness of the benefits of knowing your status, including realizing the advantages of an early diagnosis.

The theme for 2023 is “Take the Test & Take the Next Step,” focusing on how understanding your status can help you make smart decisions about your health. Regardless of the results, testing ensures that people are best prepared to prevent getting or transmitting HIV. In short, know your status to help end the HIV epidemic.

What National HIV Testing Day Can Achieve

This year’s theme emphasizes the treatments associated with testing. These treatments are available for those most at risk and those with a positive test result. For example, if you are in an at-risk category, PrEP dramatically decreases the chances of contracting HIV. Similarly, PEP is an antiretroviral medication for people who believe they may have recently been exposed.

In addition, Rapid ART is a combination of drugs that keeps the viral load low. For people living with HIV, Rapid ART reduces the chance of transmitting the virus and helps patients live long, healthy lives.

Staying Healthy With STD Testing Services

While this day focuses on HIV awareness, it’s also important to note just how essential a reliable STD testing service is for the Orange County community. STD testing is not included with HIV testing but it can be requested – and the results can help limit transmission of other infections. At Radiant Health Centers, our HIV and STD testing services are affordable based on your income. Those with insurance will be asked to share their coverage details.

What You Can Do to Support National HIV Testing Day

In tackling HIV, the National HIV/AIDS Strategy highlights the need for fast diagnoses. And with that goal in mind, you’ll want to spread this message across your social media channels. Educating people on their options – including their various testing options and rapid ART services – can help reduce the spread of HIV and deliver real benefits to the Orange County community.

Access HIV Testing Services in Orange County

Radiant Health Centers provides HIV testing and treatment at our LGBTQ+ Irvine medical clinic. To access HIV and STD testing services, contact our Orange County center today. Call (949) 809-5700 or request an appointment now.

Hormone replacement therapy in Orange County

As the largest LGBTQ+ healthcare provider in Irvine, Radiant Health Centers offers our Orange County clients hormone replacement therapy (HRT) – one among several vital gender-affirming care services we deliver. In light of an important study published earlier this year, we are emphasizing the importance of these services.

There are also ongoing studies demonstrating HRT’s significant physical, social and mental health benefits for transgender and nonbinary individuals. In response, we remain committed to bringing leading health services to the community.

New Study Highlights the Benefits of Hormone Replacement Therapy

Published by the New England Journal of Medicine, this study involved 315 participants ages 12 to 20. Nearly 70% of participants who commenced the study with severe depression reported improvements to the minimal or moderate range after two years of hormone therapy. This stark decrease in depressive symptoms highlights the crucial role of HRT in supporting the mental health of transgender and nonbinary youth.

Discrepancies between physical appearance and inner sense of gender identity can often contribute to mental health issues. HRT (also called gender-affirming hormones) is essential in aligning a transgender person’s physical characteristics with their gender identity.

These findings demonstrated that HRT contributed to better appearance congruence, increased life satisfaction – and reduced symptoms of depression and anxiety. As shown by many previous studies and affirmation from the transgender community, access to HRT is vital for improving health and well-being.

Why Access to Hormone Replacement Therapy Matters

Transgender and nonbinary individuals have historically encountered numerous obstacles in accessing gender-affirming healthcare – particularly to services tailored to their unique needs. These barriers have perpetuated disparities and adversely affected individual health outcomes, and the findings of this study clearly reinforce the necessity of accessible, affirming LGBTQ+-friendly healthcare services.

At Radiant Health Centers we have taken a proactive approach in addressing these challenges, ensuring that HRT and gender-affirming care are readily accessible to the LGBTQ+ community in Orange County. We understand the complexities surrounding the journey of self-identification and transition. Consequently, our services are structured around understanding, compassion and expertise.

Easy Access to Counseling and Mental Health Services

Our services also extend beyond HRT to encompass a broad range of healthcare needs. We offer mental health and counseling services provided by knowledgeable medical staff who understand the specific needs of the LGBTQ+ community. In addition, our youth programs are a valuable way to meet like-minded peers for support and allyship.

Overall, these services are designed to support mental wellbeing, to help manage anxiety and depression, as well as to provide strategies to cope with the challenges associated with identity and transition. As always, our Orange County LGBTQ+ medical clinic welcomes anyone looking for support and guidance in accessing our range of services.

Guests Enjoying Gala Dinner

June 3rd, 2023 marked the return of the Radiant Health Centers’ Annual Gala at The Turnip Rose Promenade in Costa Mesa. Once again, guests gathered to celebrate the work of advocates and raise funds for LGBTQ+ healthcare in Orange County. And in a night filled with joy and recognition, the community outdid itself with its generous giving.

Promoting LGBTQ+ Healthcare Equity at the Radiant Health Centers’ Gala

Orange County LGBTQ+ Annual Gala

This year’s Gala was an evening to remember as guests joined together for fun, dancing and celebration. Designed around the theme of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, attendees united for good food and live entertainment against a fairytale backdrop. Gala co-chairs Adrienne Matros and Zach Abrams did magnificent work, delivering a memorable event that will be long remembered.

As always, the broader theme of the Gala took precedence as guests and advocates gave generously in support of medical care for the LGBTQ+ community. Finding an LGBTQ+-friendly healthcare home in Orange County is still a challenge for many. However, with continued backing, Radiant Health Centers can expand its services and reach even more people.

Announcing the Radiant Compassion Award Winner

Radiant Compassion Award Winner

The highlight of the night came with the presentation of the Radiant Compassion Award 2023. This year’s deserving recipient is Broadway performer Javier Muñoz. As an actor and singer, Javier is widely celebrated for his role as Alexander Hamilton in the musical, “Hamilton.”

The Radiant Compassion Award recognizes his dedicated work fighting for LGBTQ+ rights and HIV/AIDS advocacy. Working with organizations like GMHC and (RED), Javier epitomizes the qualities of compassion and equality.

Raising Funds for Orange County’s LGBTQ+ Community

Support LGBTQ+ Healthcare Equity

At the heart of the Gala is our ongoing commitment to fundraising. And just as with previous events, guests and advocates gave generously in support of LGBTQ+ healthcare services in Orange County. Almost $260,000 was raised in total, assisted by a $25,000 matching gift. It is thanks to donors and event sponsors that Radiant Health Centers can continue to serve patients with caring, knowledgeable and inclusive medical services.

How Gala Donations Help the Orange County LGBTQ+ Community

Funds raised will go towards delivering healthcare equity for the local LGBTQ+ community. In practice, this means supporting HIV testing and treatment, improving our LGBTQ+ social services, expanding our youth programs and more. Thanks to the help and support of our many donors, sponsors and supporters, we can both tackle healthcare disparities and improve the health of our Orange County patients.

Irvine Pride Month 2023

It’s time – join Radiant Health Centers this June in celebrating Pride Month 2023. As a long-established Orange County LGBTQ+ medical clinic, we aim to use this important month to draw attention to the physical and mental health difficulties prevalent within the community. Pride Month will once again provide further opportunities to increase awareness of health and social challenges, address inequalities – and raise funds to improve health outcomes.

Celebrate Pride Month 2023 in Orange County

The roots of Pride Month trace back to the 1969 Stonewall Uprising in New York City – an event that triggered a transformative movement for LGBTQ+ rights. Today, Pride Month serves as a celebration of the progress made by the LGBTQ+ community, as well as a call to action for the work that remains to be done.

At the same time, numerous events will take place locally and across the country. From street parties and festivals to online discussions and educational lectures, Pride Month is a unique opportunity to support LGBTQ+ health equity in Orange County. At Radiant Health Centers we have many great Pride Month 2023 events, including happy hour networking, LGBTQA+ Makers Market – and of course the OC Pride Parade! See our complete Pride Month 2023 events here.

Some of the Main Goals of Pride Month

While Pride Month encourages a diversity of aims, goals and opinions, there are some consistent themes across most events.

  • Provide community support – Pride Month promotes resources and services that support the physical, mental and social health of LGBTQ+ individuals.
  • Advocate for LGBTQ+ health – Pride Month highlights the specific health needs and disparities faced by LGBTQ+ individuals, encouraging better healthcare access and continued research.
  • Celebrate diversity – Pride Month is a vibrant celebration of the diversity within the LGBTQ+ community and society in general.

Raise Awareness of Health Programs During Pride Month

Healthcare equity is a struggle for the LGBTQ+ community, and the mental and physical toll means people don’t receive the quality care they deserve. With this in mind, Radiant Health Centers is intensifying its efforts to provide inclusive and comprehensive healthcare services for the LGBTQ+ community.

Our clinic in Irvine offers a host of medical and mental health services, and during Pride Month, you can help us raise awareness of our services. Our patients now have access to LGBTQ+ counseling, youth programs, HIV and STD testing, hormone replacement therapy, family planning and primary care services. And with many more initiatives to come, we remain committed to improving health equity for the community.

Mental Health Awareness Month in Irvine

Throughout May, Radiant Health Centers joins individuals and organizations nationwide to recognize Mental Health Awareness Month. As the leading provider of LGBTQ+ counseling and mental health services in Orange County, we have witnessed directly the impact these issues have on people in Orange County. For over 70 years, this time of year has been dedicated to promoting mental health education, awareness and advocacy, and we are proud to play our part once again.

Radiant Health Centers Recognizes Mental Health Awareness Month

Mental Health Awareness Month dates back to 1949, and aims to educate the wider public on mental health issues like depression, anxiety, low self-esteem and other concerns. This year’s theme is called Look Around, Look Within. It recognizes the importance of stable housing, healthy home lives – and strong communities – for positive mental health.

Advocates are encouraged to raise awareness through social media, local events and workshops. This month is also a good time to consider using an online mental health screening to identify any symptoms of a potential mental health disorder or condition.

Mental Health and the LGBTQ+ Community

As we have previously reported, Orange County LGBTQ+ youth face mental health disparities. Sadly, younger people in the community are disproportionately affected by various mental health disorders. In fact, according to the Anxiety & Depression Association of America, LGBTQ+ teens are six times more likely to experience symptoms of depression than heterosexual teens.

At Radiant Health Centers, we believe it’s more important than ever to shine a light on these challenges and work towards a future where mental health care is accessible, inclusive and stigma-free for all.

How Radiant Health Centers Is Combating Mental Health Issues

While Radiant Health Centers is widely recognized for its commitment to ending the AIDS epidemic through accessible testing and treatment, counseling and mental health services are equally important to our mission. Improving health and social outcomes is not possible without positive emotional health, and we consistently look for ways to help the community in this area.

Recently, we launched our Youth Drop-In Center in Orange County. Aimed at young LGBTQ+ people ages 12–26, the space is available for mentoring, affirming resources, emotional support and socializing.

With a lack of judgment-free, welcoming areas for young people, the center provides a much-needed space where visitors can be themselves among their peers. Alongside our LGBTQ+ youth and mentorship program, here the younger generation has access to the tools and support needed to elevate their mental health as they progress into adulthood.

Trusted Mental Health and Counseling Services in Orange County

If you or someone you know is in need of mental health support, please contact Radiant Health Centers. Our team is here to provide compassionate, stigma-free care to all members of the LGBTQ+ community. For more information, call our Irvine center at (949) 809-5700 or request an appointment now.

AIDSWatch 2023 in Washington, D.C.

AIDSWatch – the largest, constituent-led HIV advocacy event in the United States – returned for its 30th anniversary on March 19–21, 2023. As the leading HIV testing and treatment provider in Orange County, Radiant Health Centers was proud to join the more than 350 HIV advocates from 37 states in attendance in Washington, D.C. Over three days, attendees met with 182 congressional offices, all steadfast in their determination to end the HIV epidemic in this country.

What Is AIDSWatch?

In the 30 years since it began, AIDSWatch has grown from a small group of HIV/AIDS advocates working to improve the lives of people living with HIV to a groundbreaking advocacy event making a widely-felt difference.

AIDSWatch advocates for policies that address various aspects of life for people living with HIV, including healthcare access, housing, mental health and substance use disorder services, supportive services, access to quality food, reproductive choices and employment. Along with events like World AIDS Day, the event provides an opportunity for collaboration across all communities and political lines by focusing on achieving shared goals.

AIDSWatch 2023 in Washington, D.C.

Radiant Health Centers at AIDSWatch 2023

A delegation from Radiant Health Centers visited Capitol Hill to engage with California representatives, including Max Ernst, Deputy Chief of Staff/Legislative Director for Rep. Katie Porter. As Orange County’s largest provider of HIV care, we have seen the impact of this global public health issue on individuals and communities.

Our staff members, clients and colleagues had productive discussions on the need for greater federal funding to tackle the wide-ranging issues associated with HIV. From early testing and treatment to counseling and stigma-free care, an increased commitment to government funding will play a vital role in our ability to deliver first-class services.

In addition to participating in AIDSWatch, Daniel Garza – a client of Radiant Health Centers – interviewed Joe Alfano and David Harrod on his podcast, Lilmesican Productions Inc. You can learn more about the event by watching here.

How Radiant Health Centers Is Contributing to Ending the HIV Epidemic

Throughout its long history, AIDSWatch has been committed to policy advocacy that will end the HIV epidemic. Crucial policies identified issues such as healthcare barriers, the need for secure medical coverage, aging with HIV, access to HIV-related medication and so on.

At Radiant Health Centers, these issues are at the heart of what we do each day. From providing easy access to HIV testing services to working with younger people through our youth programs, we offer a safe, welcoming environment for the Orange County community. And with continued advocacy and collaboration, backed by increased federal funding, we believe the HIV epidemic can be ended once and for all.
