  1. I wanted to bump this back up if any applicants now applying want to reach out to myself or others who want to support!
  2. Looking at earlier posts on this thread, I feel you can see the calibre of inclusivity amongst students and current applicants – some folks that get it because they are queer people and fight to be represented, and others that don’t know their own privilege and speak from uninformed platforms of being cis-hetero individuals (which becomes infuriating). I would hope some folks unlearn harmful behaviours and language before they enter medicine, but also learn through an intersectional lens of understanding Indigenous issues, race issues, queer issues and other barriers and disparities in healthc
  3. I think OP you can tell by the tone of this post is that there are quite a few people in the class (and applicants by this standard), that should be called out for their heteronormativity and comments/remarks that are made. From a current student’s perspective: The profs are pretty heteronormative and binary in their approach to teaching. A student-run queer mentorship group does exist, but it’s a lot of white queer folks and there isn’t a dedicated physician mentor that lead it (unlike the other mentorship groups). There aren’t really many queer Black, Indigenous, or people of colour
  4. For those who are starting MD2024, there’s an LGBTQ2S+ Mentorship Group (student-run with invited Physician mentors) that you’ll be able to join. It is a confidential space for participants and you’re able to connect with other queer folk in medicine. (You should get the details in August)
  5. If you self-identify as a BIPOC and LGBTQ2S+ and want some help with your UBC Med application for the 2020-2021 cycle, PLEASE PM me! I’m a medical student and want to help folks who may be using this forum and aren’t able to access other resources. I am willing to offer help *for free*. I can help with your NAQ and/or answer any questions you may have about your application. If you aren’t a BIPOC, but self-identify as trans* or non-binary/gender-diverse, please reach out as well!! The reason why I’m doing this is that LGBTQ2S+ BIPOC are not represented in medicine and face intersect
