Lebanon is hosting its first-ever LGBT sexual health week and will focus on the marginalization of the community, Gay Star News, a U.K. outlet, reports. The Lebanese Medical Association for Sexual Health (LebMASH) will run the health week, which will focus on how the marginalization of the LGBTI community affects mental health. In a series of videos the health campaign tackles the myriad of issues LGBT people face living in Lebanon. One of the videos features Dr. Fadi (no first name given), a sexual health specialist. “As a doctor, my mission includes raising awareness and not just treatment. But I’m unable to fulfill my duties when it comes to the sexual health of (LGBT) people and this worries me,” he said in the video.
