More and more people are coming out as non-binary, but for some it still isn’t clear what these identities mean, how to exist within them, and what path forward is available. We hope to use this space to help explore these identities, breakdown what positive futures are out there for people (both with and without medical intervention), and to answer any questions that you might have.
The event will include two breakout rooms:
1 – In the LGBTQ+ teens & adults room we’ll be joined by medical provider Erin Everett NP (She/Her) for North Druid Hills Primary Care alongside non-binary panelists C Garcia (They/Them) and Ethan Jackson (They/Any).
Erin Everett sub-specializes in Transgender Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT). A life-long Ally of the LGBTQ+ community, Erin is devoted to health promotion, disease prevention, and expanding access to care to the LGBTQ+ community. She works to achieve this mission by providing a safe, non-judgmental environment for individuals to receive high quality healthcare and to receive Gender Affirming treatments.She is the creator and host of “Exclusively Inclusive,” a podcast dedicated to healthcare topics impacting the LGBTQ+ community, ranging from typical primary care needs, to Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) and HIV treatment and prevention.
Dr. Lowell moved to Atlanta in 2013 and joined the faculty at Emory University, where she started the Gender Clinic at Emory. After moving to Atlanta, she realized that there are very limited options for trans* people to get medical care. “I met several trans people in this area who told me they couldn’t find a doctor who would treat them, not even for basic medical issues. As I started learning about hormone therapy and transgender medicine, I began to realize just how big the need is for trans care in the Southeast.” Dr. Lowell has attended conferences and worked with experts around the country to learn more about transgender medicine. She is a member of World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH), Gay and Lesbian Medical Association (GLMA), and gives lectures regularly to educate other medical providers and students about transgender medicine.Dr. Lowell is proud to be a member of the LGBTQ community, and is passionate about equality and respect for all. She lives in Atlanta with her wife and two children.
The sessions will include a Q&A – if there are questions you know you would like to ask in advance, please send them to us (noting whether it is for the LGBTQ+ or Allies room) via social media message, post them to this event, or reach us through our contact page.
Note: As this is such an important topic, it will replace this week’s usual support meetings.
