Pride in healthcare

We're in pride month, and this year the celebration of LGBT+ people seems to be increasingly contentious.  Healthcare's treatment of queer people has improved hugely since the days when being gay was considered a mental disorder, and would end a doctor's career - but that doesn't mean that everything is equal.

In this episode of Doctor Informed, we're hearing from two doctors who are out and proud at work, about what  it's been like to be queer in medicine, and what good allyship looks like.
