Want a doctor that makes you feel safe and are not judged?

The Australian Lesbian Medical Association (ALMA) is a network of around one hundred lesbian doctors and medical students from all over Australia. ALMA is contacted frequently by women patients wanting recommendations of a lesbian/bi-friendly doctors and mental health professionals in their area. In response to this need, a group of ALMA members decided to start the DocLIST project.

ALMA are making a list of doctors and mental health professionals that are recommended by lesbians and bisexual women patients all over Australia. Some of these clinicians are themselves lesbian or bisexual, while most are heterosexual but are lesbian/bi-friendly. At the top of the list it clearly states that the clinicians on the list are not necessarily lesbian/bi women. ALMA does not guarantee the quality of the service provided by these professionals. Rather, they have been recommended by lesbian and bisexual women patients patients as doctors or mental health professionals with whom they feel comfortable being open about matters to do with their sexual orientation.

For a doctor or mental health professional to be included on the list, ALMA requires a recommendation from at least one lesbian / bisexual woman (see other criteria below). Once a recommendation is received, ALMA will write to the recommended professional, informing them about the project (without disclosing the person who recommended them) to ask if they consent to be on the list.

So check out the ALMA list and find a recommend doctor in your area.
