Motivated by a desire to address health inequalities in the LGBTQ+ community, Dentsu Creative strategists looked at the LGBTQ+ community’s most talkative and outgoing segments and identified influencers to show up in a way that’s genuine while discussing health care conversations on social. These influencers were known to show up in an entertaining, truthful & unapologetic way, that reflects the growing presence among LGBTQ+ community for Preparation H and the conversation around hemorrhoid’s on social media.
