“There is a lot happening in our country that is out of our control right now. Advocating for our health has never been more important & it is within our power to request services that will benefit our overall wellness. Appointments & procedures can be intimidating, nerve-wracking, and confusing, especially for LGBTQIA+ folks. By discussing our stories & encouraging others to seek out healthcare resources, we have the power to save lives together.”
