Endometriosis Awareness Month
Posted on: Fri 27 Mar 2020
March is Endometriosis Awareness Month, so Sam sat down with local artist, self-taught playwright, and endo activist Jamila Main to talk about their experience as a queer person with endometriosis.
But first, a quick content warning: in the first half of the interview Jamila describes what they went through when getting diagnosed, and that includes some mistreatment by medical professionals which may be hard to hear. The discussion starts when Sam asks “How did you go about figuring out you had endometriosis?” and lasts about 4 minutes. We think that raising awareness is important, but it’s also important to do so safely and respectfully.
