Sexual health has always been a stigmatized topic. I would like to destigmatize it by providing a non-judgemental space for the people to talk about it. People should be made more aware about the facts regarding sexual health and make their lives content and distress free. I am queer affirmative and my motto is to let people talk about sexual health and deal with it like any other health concern.
