Call for NYC Kink/Poly/LGBTQ Affirmative Providers
Welcome to the launch of ManhattanAlternative.com! We are a network of therapeutic service providers in New York City who are sex-positive, affirmative, and have expertise related to issues that kink, poly, consensually non-monogamous, trans, gender non-conforming, and/or LGBQ-identified individuals face. I started working on this collaborative in 2014 in an effort to address the lack of openly affirmative support to the communities I’ve been a part of in NYC for the past 10+ years, and am very much looking forward to seeing it grow.
Because we hope to provide people seeking affirmative health care with a network of providers that is as inclusive and diverse as possible, we’re putting a call out to encourage therapists and health care professionals of varying races, ethnicities, gender expressions, and abilities to fill out the Provider Application Form if they are interested in being listed as a kink/poly/trans/LGBQ-affirmative provider.
Listing priority is given to those who are referred from an existing ManhattanAlternative.com provider, or those with verifiable alternative lifestyle affirmative academic publications or presentations, and have personal intersections and work experience with more than one of the communities listed above.
Any and all feedback is welcome, and please feel free to share—thank you!
