Through its annual retreats, WIM engages a national community of lesbian, sexual minority women, and gender expansive physicians, medical students, and our families. WIM values cross-specialty continuing medical education, family-oriented community building activities, and professional mentorship.
A network of lesbian, sexual minority women and gender expansive physicians committed to each other’s professional and personal growth in a feminist space.
Statement on Racism:
As a network of lesbian, sexual minority, and gender expansive physicians we stand today with our black community. We mourn with you not just the needless loss of yet another black life, but also the pervasive and intrinsic racism that is tightly woven into the fabric of all aspects of American life. Our queerness and the many injustices we have faced as a result, does not confer an automatic understanding of the lived experiences and repetitive injustices experienced by black Americans, nor does it give us a pass in doing the hard work of dismantling white supremacy in our lives and work.
Each year we honor Pride month, celebrate our freedom, and affirm our humanity it is not lost on us that it was through riot that Marsha P. Johnson, a black trans woman, led us to liberation. We commit to the work, we reject racism, and we stand for justice. Today and every day, Black Lives Matter.
