Been asked about promiscuity by a doctor, because you’re told them you’re Bi? Been told that it doesn’t matter that you’re infertile by a nurse because you’re a lesbian? Been fully supported by a knowledgeable GP when you nervously told them you were Trans? Told that you can’t have support from the NHS for being Trans ‘because it’s too expensive?’ Been too scared to go to A+E or call an ambulance because you’re afraid they’ll make judgements? Experienced exceptional compassionate non-judgemental care from a professional during your hospital stay?
