PRIDE MONTH!

​Hey there, peeps! It’s Emily, the Social Media/Blog Manager!

I’ve never written one of these before, mainly because I leave the medical stuff to my mother and the conversational stuff for my father. But this time, the topic is somewhat of my department.
It’s Pride Month! And being in the community myself, I feel it’s super important to make sure we acknowledge the struggles of the community so we make sure we don’t repeat the same mistakes of history gone.
Now, where do I fall in the LGBT alphabet? Well, I’m the ‘A’ – Asexual. This means I don’t feel sexual attraction, nor do I feel the need to do the deed. This is something that took me a little while to realise, but that’s what being Queer is. Learning who you are until you know and feel comfortable with a label. Of course, you don’t have to label yourself if you don’t want to, and there’s nothing wrong with that. Kudos to all Queer folk regardless!
Both my parents have been very accepting, and even if they don’t fully understand it, they love me regardless. Of course, this isn’t the case for a lot of people – including some good friends of mine. And if you’re out there reading this, please know – there is ALWAYS going to be someone who loves you for you.
Now, back on track – right! So, being in the community, I see a lot of what goes on and the struggles a lot of us face; such as family building. And at IVF Treatment Abroad, we’ve always believed that all our patients should be treated equally, and we always will, regardless of your gender, race or sexuality. There is no judgement from us – we are a safe space for you, and we will always support you on your journey.
Unfortunately, due to country laws, we are limited on who we are able to treat. However, we are constantly looking to expand our services to include ALL kinds of LGBTQ patients, and give you all a better, cheaper, and safer experience as you work to increase your family. There are many options out there, but what we want is to make sure that we provide the best possible service to you while reassuring you that you are in good hands, and have the best care available. Just as we would any other patient.
It’s time to celebrate who you are, folks. This month belongs to us, no matter what anyone else says. We live as our own people, and are allowed to live as who we are. Always be proud, and always know that we are supported by so many. I love y’all.
PEACE OUT!
