Health Care, Advocacy and Research


Our New Entrance!

The Equi Institute's mission is to empower and improve the health of the LGBTQI2S communities of the Pacific Northwest. The Equi Institute provides affordable, excellent, culturally specific, patient empowering health care that fits the needs of the individual rather than trying to make people fit a cookie-cutter model.  


We have a wonderful partnership with the Portland Q Center and are so glad to be launching another year of trans and queer health care in the Pacific Northwest.


We are still seeing patients as Sacred Vessel Medicine while we complete our transition into Equi as a free standing non-profit, but our mission remains the same. We are currently accepting new patients for all of our providers, including naturopathy, acupuncture, and counseling.


You can now find us at 4115 N. Mississippi, just look for our sign! Our front desk is open Monday-Friday from 10am-6pm, though we are closed from 1:30-2:30pm for lunch. Occasionally the office will be closed for offsite conferences, workshops, and other events.
