2017 is shaping up to be a banner year for anti-LGBT discrimination

Lambda Legal reports that over half of LGBT individuals claim to have experienced discrimination from a healthcare provider. Meanwhile, more than a quarter of trans respondents told the National Women’s Law Center in 2014 that they had been refused services from a doctor or medical professional outright. One woman claimed that when her doctor found out that she was transgender, he forced her to have a pelvic exam, despite the fact that she was being treated for a sore throat.
