We were a little late in getting this episode out, but this is a conversation that needs to be continued even after Pride Month. This episode covers what healthcare looks like for individuals within the LGBTQ+ community ranging from chronic illness to HIV/AIDS. We were lucky enough to be joined by Brad Johnson who helped guide us through this discussion! Brad is a nurse at Baylor Scott and White who works closely with the LGBTQ+ community.
Also, Jamila was congested because she always manages to find a way to come down with something or the other, so please excuse her nasally voice.
Here are some resources for cool/non-judgmental clinics to go to for any of your healthcare needs and some places to go if you need support, or just a safe place:
The Kind Clinic: Specializes in HIV prevention/testing, provides STI exams, offers hormone therapy (Austin)
Out Youth: Organization based on helping LGBTQ+ youth (Austin)
Health Professionals Advancing LGBT Equality: Find a health care provider that you can trust (National)
