What I mean by “Queer Friendly”
For some people, the term, “queer friendly” just means, “comfortable with two moms”. However, this event is open to the queer community as a whole, not just monogamous couples. Please take a moment to read the following excerpt from an ad I’m posting with x-tra west:
"Your doula will be accompanying you in one of the most meaningful and intimate moments of your life, so it is import to find one who is Queer Friendly and a good fit. Browsing through websites can be confusing and interviewing multiple doulas can be very time-consuming. The Doulas at this event have all been hand-selected for their dedication to birthing families and their LGBTQ-friendliness. Whether you are a queer single-mom, transgendered, intersex, an adoptive couple and birth mother, newlywed dykes, unconventional queer extended family, or a BDSM couple, you can feel confident coming to Doula Speed Dating."
Please let me know if you feel comfortable with that description. I really want to be sure that people from all parts of the LGBTQ spectrum feel welcome and not just “tolerated”.
If you have any questions, aren’t sure, etc, please let me know. I promise full confidentiality, so if you decide that you are not comfortable with it, you can say so without risking embarrassment or judgment.
