The Women, Gender Diversity, and Sexual Minorities Working Group is an initiative of the Chacruna Institute for Psychedelic Plant Medicines. We are dedicated to fostering accessibility and diversity in psychedelic science, practice, and discourses, addressing and dismantling sexist, heteronormative, transphobic and homophobic forms of oppression, and allying with other under-represented communities to combat oppressive practices in the psychedelic communities. We envision collective practices where people who have been traditionally marginalized may share a seat at the table and have their voices heard to ensure equitable access to the benefits that psychedelics and plant medicine offer.  We cover social, political, ethical, and therapeutic perspectives affecting women and sexual and gender minority people, provide improved public education. We are committed to promoting the presence of people of women and LGBTQ people in conferences, events, documentaries, media interviews etc., furthering psychedelic research of, by, and for sexual and gender minority people, and advising providers on LGBTQ-affirmative practices in psychedelic medicine research, policy, and practice.
