Les Henderson

Founder of endoQueer, Host of the Be A Beacon Podcast

Les Henderson (she/her/they) is the founder of endoQueer and host of the Be A Beacon Podcast. As a black masculine of center lesbian, her endo journey has been complicated due to erasure in medical and online spaces.  In 2016, she survived a spontaneous pneumothorax (lung collapse) that happened due to endometriosis and once this happened, she knew that she had to get out here and tell her story and create a space to help others.
