In 2019, the state legislature enacted CGS sec 19a-132, establishing a Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer Health and Human Services Network to make recommendations to the three branches of state government.

The expressed intent was to build a safer and healthier environment for gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and queer persons. Members of the committee charged with this directive are expected to conduct a needs analysis, collect additional data on community health and human services needs, inform state policy and build organizational member capacity, leadership and advocacy across the geographic and social spectrum of the LGBTQ community.
