I feel the most confident when: I have just finished a good run --- heart pounding, blood flowing strong, lungs sucking in air. Or, when I've just finished several hours of intense shopping and I'm heading back to the truck with a bulk of shopping bags on my arms. 

What's one item you can't leave home without? My iPod, because music is what gets me through each day.

What's your favorite food? My taste buds are always changing, but currently, it's a toss-up between Zaxby's Wings & Things meal or a big juicy hamburger covered in portobello mushrooms and swiss cheese. If you want to skip the main course and go straight for the good stuff, it's a slice of cheesecake covered in raspberry sauce.

My greatest achievement has been: Learning to be comfortable in my own skin.

What do you hope your next greatest achievement will be? Given that there has been a writer dwelling inside me since early childhood, one achievement to hope for is publishing my writing and the opportunity to see my work displayed on the shelves of a local bookstore.  

Boxers or briefs? Briefs.

If you won $1 million (tax free) and had to give half of it away, who would you give it to? I would give it to a handful of people who are important to me, with the requirement that they use the money to see the world, to travel somewhere or everywhere that they've always wanted to see. I know that traveling abroad is an experience that can change a person's life, and I feel that giving others the chance to have that experience would be a special and rewarding use of that money.

As an LGBTQ+ patient, you should be able to expect the same high-quality care provided to all patients. Unfortunately, this doesn’t necessarily always prove to be the case. There remains a notoriously significant disparity in healthcare outcomes for LGBTQ+ patients, often related to issues with discrimination among providers.

Even when you find a good physician, this doesn’t mean that everyone interacting with your healthcare information will be as respectful or responsible. It is, therefore, important to be vigilant about how your data is handled. You have a right to privacy just as you have an expectation of fair treatment.
