Colors of Love and Spaces of Freedom
We joyfully raise the rainbow flag in June in celebration of Gay Pride Month. But that is not all we need to raise. Today especially, we must continue to raise our voices in protest against the many forms of outrageous hurt and oppression that are inflicted on LGBTQ people daily.
As someone who has made her life’s work providing and fighting for needed reproductive health services for women, a battle that continues without letup today, I am outraged that LGBTQ people continue to be so seriously demeaned and discriminated against, not “only” in everyday life but by the medical profession itself, a profession supposedly committed to “healing” and “doing no harm.”
Finding an LGBTQ-friendly doctor should not be a stressful experience – but too often it still is. National Public Radio recently reported results of a poll that found that 18 percent of all LGBTQ people in the US don’t go to physicians for fear of discrimination. That’s almost one-fifth of the LGBTQ population, itself seriously undercounted.
In contrast, Choices has, from its earliest days, welcomed people of all sexual orientations and gender identities. We conduct education and training sessions for our staff in culturally competent care, sensitivity and awareness of the particular issues that LGBTQ people face. At the same time, our health care providers are highly skilled professionals in gynecology, Behavioral Health, Pre-Natal care, sexually transmitted infections, and more. All this is especially important in the current situation of political hostility and damaging policies directed toward so many.
At Choices, we say, “Our Specialty is You” and we mean it – Our Specialty is You AS YOU ARE and AS YOU WANT TO BE. Our mission is to assist you to live your life to the fullest, with the best health care possible. We pride ourselves in being a Safe Haven for LGBTQ people and commit ourselves to continuing this course.
