(response to Angel)
Hi Angel! You make a lot of great points in your post. I was also shocked to see how insurance providers discriminated against LGBTQ people. Although we know that this discrimination exists, to see it done so blatantly and artificially – asking questions about if one is a hairdresser or florist, for example – is very eye-opening. It also reminded me of how gay men are discriminated against regarding blood donations. Even during our current pandemic, gay men are still unable to give blood in the same way straight people are able.
