You’ve broken out in a cold sweat. You’re short of breath. And you feel pressure in your chest. You’ve got health insurance and know you should be going to the emergency room — yet you don’t.

The situation seems to defy logic, but now imagine that you’re living in a small, conservative community. You’re a transgender man. And your primary care doctor is more than 100 miles away because you were humiliated by the staff during your visit to the local doctor’s office. You’ve heard horror stories about the local hospital.

This isn’t hypothetical. It’s a situation that plays out in small towns and large cities across the nation. According to a landmark survey by Lambda Legal, 70 percent of transgender people and 56 percent of lesbian, gay, and bisexual people have reported discrimination in health care services. And large numbers reported being refused care outright — with transgender people, people of color, and people living with HIV being disproportionately denied treatment.

"There’s a second interesting tidbit in all that “lesbians are more likely to be fat” business. As it turns out, queer girls (lesbians AND bisexuals) are ALSO more likely to NOT THINK they’re fat, even when their BMI puts them in one of the “overweight” categories. On the flip side, straight girls are more likely to think of themselves as fat even when they’re not. That’s right, “overweight” queer ladies tend to be less critical of their bodies than straight women. Researchers want to call this a problem of self-perception, but I have a different theory. It could be, perhaps, that queer girl culture doesn’t suffer the incessant, unreasonable pressure of the male gaze in the same way that straight girl culture does. After all, if you don’t have to concern yourself with attracting men as romantic partners, it’s considerable more reasonable to not give a fuck about their photoshopped-magazine-and-mainstream-pornography-fueled beauty standards, and you might be less likely to internalize that garbage."
