Working in a health facility has many challenges having a transgender man client and getting to understand the challenges he had before made me realise that as an individual I had to stand up and advocate not only for him but for the all LGBTs. It was a struggle to explain and change the mindset of my colleagues to not judge people by their identity but just provide a service, but eventually they realized and looked back and saw how they had wronged or violated clients previously and started realizing that everyone’s health comes 1st regardless of their sexual orientation. But it all started with the change of our mind sets and having an ear to listen and understanding.
