The ALL ME® Podcast
Sue Campbell: OUT Maine
When looking at the use of Anabolic Steroids, it is important to know that these drugs are used for a variety of different reasons beyond athletic performance. One of the proper medical uses of these drugs is for Hormone Replacement Therapy. We wanted to discuss this topic within the LGBTQ+ community with our friend Sue Campbell from OUT Maine. Sue is the Executive Director of OUT Maine, an organization that creates welcoming and affirming spaces needed by our LGBTQ+ population through youth programs, school programs, inclusivity training and support, and more.
We talk to Sue about LGBTQ+ youth using Anabolic Steroids and Testosterone including the reasons for usage, the rates of usage, and the risks of not doing this under proper medical guidance. Sue shares her own personal story about why she works for OUT Maine, how the organization has grown over the years, and the impact she has seen OUT Maine’s programs have on the youth she works with. We discuss the training our organization did with Sue a few years ago to improve our own program and the education we did in Maine alongside OUT Maine and the Maine Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics. By having this conversation, we hope to enlighten others to the many groups of people turning to these drugs and emphasize the importance of resources and education in this area.
