Austin is an attractive tourist destination with bat population exceeding the city residents. The city is also known as a friendly place for the LGBTQ community. The growing number of people in the city has given rise to the need for affordable, comprehensive care.
In 2018, the Kind Clinic in Austin partnered with Rick Cofer’s law office to organize Halloween ball for the benefit of the LGBTQ community as well as its healthcare needs. Although the city is very accommodative to the LGBTQ community, wellness security is missing. While the general look at the minority group might indicate a thriving LGBTQ community, homelessness, safety and food insecurity affects many members of the community.
According to medicaldailytimes, over 50% of participants admitted to have experienced homelessness at some point in their lives. Additionally, more than half of the participants have been affected by financial insecurity making it hard for them to get quality medical care. It is even of greater concern to note that religiously-inclined health facilities are being discriminative against the LGBTQ community making it even harder for them to access quality medical care.
The few health resources in Austin have been strained with people coming from all over Texas for health care services. The Kind Clinic in Austin recognized that the already struggling LGBTQ community is facing big health care challenge. It now serves the members of the community including transgender, gay, and gender-nonconforming people. The firm has been proving unparalleled health care services with an emphasis on sexual health. It serves all Austin residents without discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender. Some of the services The Kind Clinic offers include pre-exposure prophylaxis and post-exposure prophylaxis medications for people who are at the risk of being exposed to HIV, reports by chronicleweek.com
The Kind Clinic organized the Show Us Your Fantasy Ball event to encourage creativity and expression. It aimed at demonstrating to the residents that the healthcare firm embraces inclusion and acceptance of sexual preferences. The inclusion and acceptance enables people to talk freely on matters concerning sex making it easy to get treatment for sex-related illness. The event received unwavering support from Rick Cofer, a successful criminal defense attorney who promotes inclusive values in Austin.
