A new LGBT clinic is opening at the Jackson Medical Mall in the Thad Cochran Center.

Apparently the first of its kind in the state, it’s a project of UMMC’s new Division of Gender, Sexuality and Health, directed by Dr. Kim Gratz, a School of Medicine professor and researcher who is overseeing a new LGBT Health Program, as well as a Women’s Health Program.

The LGBT Clinic is offering psychiatric care as well as psychotherapy to a population making up 2-5 percent of the state’s inhabitants, by Rodgers’ estimate.

In an interview with News Mississippi, Dr. Scott Rodgers, chair of the University of Mississippi Medical Center Department of Psychiatry and Human Behavior said that some doctors are “culturally incompetent”, and believe that being gay is a choice. He said to call it a lifestyle implies that it is a choice, which he believes is wrong.

One thought on “LGBT clinic to open in Thad Cochran Center, proponent calls some doctors “culturally incompetent”. 

  1. If they are made that way and it’s not a choice then why is psychiatric care and psychotherapy necessary?

    Oh it’s a choice alright.

    “For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.”
    ‭‭Romans‬ ‭1:26-27‬ ‭KJV‬‬
