Send Us Your Stories
Please get in touch and send us your stories, no matter how trivial you think they may be.
We may edit some submissions if the content is too identifiable or if we feel that discriminatory language has been used; because let's be honest, none of us is perfect!
If you've managed to get a positive outcome from your experience, please include this in your story
so that others in similar situations can learn how they too might affect change.
We need your voices to make sure we're heard!

From serious misconduct, to uncomfortable moments in the doctor's office; if you tell us about it, then we'll document it.
The entire story archive is below. Browse the articles, or search for keywords to find stories of interest.
Many of our stories contain difficult and sometimes traumatic experiences. Please be sure to take care while reading these; your safety and mental health is our top priority.
All names and specific clinic locations are redacted in our publications. We believe homophobic practice is so prevalent that calling out individual locations will draw unnecessary attention to those clinics. We would rather highlight the wider issue of ignorance and discrimination across the healthcare system as a whole.
