Message From Merle
As we launch Choices Medical Transcare, we are pleased to bring you some thoughts from Melissa Sklarz, Board Co-Chair of Empire Pride Agenda, the state-wide LGBTQ lobbying organization and long-time political and community activist. We are honored to share her comments with you.
Today’s LGBT health network began as a response to HIV-AIDS. Today it’s imperative and essential that trans people have our own network of doctors, nurses and other healthcare providers. The physical transition from one gender to another – the biological, emotional and psychological changes – are unique and cry out for specialized care.
Until recently it was difficult to get the healthcare industry to recognize the uniqueness of trans lives. Choices is part of a new generation of medical caregivers who are aware of that uniqueness and is a facility where the expectation of sensitivity will be realized for trans people. Bringing trans-affirming health to Southeast Queens is a niche that needs to be filled.
