In a huge step for Lebanon, the Lebanese Medical Association for Sexual Health (or what’s creatively known as LebMASH) has released a video for the country’s first-ever LGBTI Sexual Health Week.
The series of videos highlights the issues that effect LGBT people in the country, and it includes info from Dr. Fadi who is considered one of the best sexual-health experts in the country.
‘As a doctor, my mission includes raising awareness and not just treatment. But I’m unable to fulfil my duties when it comes to the sexual health of LGBTI people and this worries me,’ he said in the video.
