LGBTI+ Physical Health Booklet
In this booklet, you will read about various healthcare barriers which unfortunately still exist, as well as previous barriers and discrimination that we have already
overcome. I have written this booklet both as a doctor who is interested in the topic professionally, and as a queer person who has been personally subjected to
discrimination and prejudice in the medical setting.
Through the years that I’ve worked on sexual and reproductive health and rights, I have encountered many troubling information from the past that made
me sad, angry, and determined to make a difference. I am a strong believer of community care and I wanted to help provide reliable, accessible, queer friendly information regarding LGBTI+ physical health to our community, in a way it could be accessed without having to worry about the potential complications of going to healthcare clinics. My hope for all of us, as I’m writing this, is that one day future generations will look back on this booklet and be shocked by the problems we have faced.
