Hi! We’re pumped to announce that Anchor Health has a refreshed look and new website. Don’t worry. We’re still the same LGBTQ health center you love—just now, we look the part. As we continue to grow, we want to share our changes and the reasons behind them.
Why the change?
It was overdue. When A.C. Demidont, DO, AAHIVS, founded Anchor Health in 2016, all she had was a laptop, a cellphone, a stethoscope, and a vision of empowering queer people in all aspects of their lives. Our focus was on providing high-quality and LGBTQ-affirming patient care. We didn’t have the resources to establish our brand. All our growth came through the power of community and word-of-mouth.
Last year, we came together as a team and decided that it was time to invest in ourselves. We set out to create a stunning, cohesive, and inclusive brand to accompany our patient care.
It’s time to build for the future.
So, what’s different?
We’ve refined the Anchor Health brand with updates to our name, logos, colors, descriptions, imagery, and more. We’ve also launched a new website.
We’re just Anchor Health now. It’s nice to meet you! 👋
We no longer use “Anchor Health Initiative.” Since our founding in 2016, we have grown significantly. “Initiative” didn’t feel like the right fit anymore. Our name now reflects our role as Connecticut’s leading LGBTQ health center. It also positions us for the future.
We have simplified our logo to tie in with our name update. The pink to blue gradient represents fluidity, creativity, and queerness.
Our primary brand colors are Break Free Blue and Purple Menace.
We use functional colors like black, grey, and white to accompany our brand colors.
And accent colors give us creative flexibility.
We’ve updated how we talk about Anchor Health to better reflect who we are and what services we offer.
Use this as your go-to description when you need to provide a brief overview about Anchor Health.
Anchor Health is Connecticut’s leading health center for the LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer) community. We bring groundbreaking, radically inclusive, gender-affirming, and sex-positive care to every patient who walks through our doors. Established in 2016, we now see more than 2,500 patients across two full-service clinics and over 50% are transgender and gender nonconforming. Our services include primary and preventative care, Gender & Life-Affirming Medicine (GLAM), HIV prevention and treatment, comprehensive STI testing, behavioral health care, and more. We are health care for queer people by queer people.
