Steph Meech is one of the first transgender nurses in Britain and, as she told Daily Mailfor 20 years he has not stopped suffering abuse from his patients.
Steph said that since coming out as transgender, she has suffered physical and verbal abuse. In addition, he stated that some patients who are going to be treated by her ask him “What is it?” and learning that she is part of the trans community, they refuse her help and, unfortunately, others spit on her.
It is worth mentioning that the paramedic works for the South East Coast of Great Britain Ambulance Service (SECAmb) and although she loves her profession and most of her patients appreciate her attention, the minority spoils the humanitarian value of her profession and gets hurt from these incidents.
According to the British media, Steph is one of the leaders of the emergency health team, but she is also an advocate for diversity among the SECAmb teams, as part of her campaign to leave fear behind.
For its part, SECAmb thinks that it is unacceptable that its workers suffer any type of violence, since they are normal members like everyone else and that even, if necessary, legal measures will be taken against users who perpetrate the integrity of the servers. health.
Since coming out, I have been able to be my true self and feel enlightened by the change. This is who I am and I’ve had to keep it hidden for a long time.
