Dear Straight People,
Vietnam’s Health Ministry issued an official statement following reports of discrimination against the LGBT+ community by doctors and other medical workers.
“Do not consider homosexuality, bisexuality or being transgender a disease.
Homosexuality cannot be ‘cured’, does not need ‘to be cured’ and cannot be changed.”
Ignorance about the LGBT+ community is rife in Vietnam, and LGBT+ children are reportedly being brought to doctors who claim to be able to ‘cure’ them.
The official statement from Vietnam’s Health Ministry sends a powerful message to both medical workers and parents alike that being LGBT+ is not a disease.
