GLAD won a favorable settlement on behalf of Erica Gagne, who was denied treatment by Dr. Abraham of the Holyoke Health Center after she identified herself as a lesbian.  Ms. Gagne, who went to the health center seeking a second opinion about the cause of abdominal pain she experienced, was berated by Dr. Abraham, and was told, “when we engage in unnatural acts, we are punished by God.” She claimed she was then refused treatment.
