About Queermed Germany
Queermed Germany would not have come into being through the important preparatory work that others have already done. Thanks to Queermed Austria and Gynformation, who supported me with a lot of advice and knowledge at the start of the project.
For many people from the LGBTQIA+ community and also other groups who have to deal with everyday discrimination, it is still a problem to seek medical help. Prejudices and resentments towards the community are still strong in some minds and especially when it comes to the need for medical support, be it after moving to a new city or seeking psychological / psychotherapeutic help. Especially in such dependency situations, it is important that we can fully trust the person with the medical training.
With a lot of luck, we get recommendations from the community itself, but especially when we move or are completely dependent on the environment, we cannot get valuable recommendations from friends or acquaintances. This is exactly where the Queermed Germany project aims to support people.
Above all, this power imbalance between the person treating and the patient; the fact that we are dependent on the professional expertise and goodwill of the other person in the practice shows the necessity of being able to find such places.
At this point, I would also like to thank a number of individual people who have accompanied and supported this project & me to some extent at various points: Clara Wördenweber (logo), Alexander Borunski (search function), Manuel, Nicky, Luka, Ayda.
