LGBTQIA+ Welcoming Resources in Lebanon

With the support of MADRE, the Lebanese Medical Association for Sexual Health took on a project in which we mapped out different resources in the country that are welcoming to members of the LGBTQIA+ community, and show no sexual/gender-based discrimination in their workspaces and practices.
