By: NetStruc PR
Dr. DeShawn Taylor, a Board-certified Gynecologist & Family Planning Specialist in Arizona, her private medical practice, Desert Star Family Planning, began a dedicated gender-affirming care clinic for transgender and non-binary individuals on June 19, 2021 (Juneteenth)
Dr. Taylor is looking to make a difference in the healthcare industry. Everyone deserves just, dignified, and exceptional care. Discrimination is rampant and the health care industry is not immune. Bodily autonomy is a human right. The visibility of non-binary individuals has grown tremendously within the last ten years. Celebrities and influencers are publicly identifying as non-binary individuals. Passports and other state identifications are beginning to offer "gender-neutral markers." As awareness increases, the healthcare industry must evolve to address the needs of all people.
