Don’t be a boob – get your breasts checked!

Health, Sexuality

At the beginning of this year BreastScreen Victoria launched the Beautiful Women campaign – aimed at celebrating the beauty and diversity of lesbian, bisexual, trans, and intersex women aged 26 – 76.

Earlier this month, BreastScreen Victoria hosted a ‘Butch Melon Camp’ event for lesbian and bisexual women in Melbourne, particularly targeted butch women, in response to feedback that this group is particularly under screened.

Family Matters, with special co-host Bree, are joined by Doris & Monique from BreastScreen Victoria & Catherine from Celebrate Ageing to discuss this event.  They also discuss what to expect when having a mammogram.
