WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE RAINBOW REGISTERED?
According to the CGLCC, "Rainbow Registered is a national accreditation for 2SLGBTQI+ friendly businesses and organizations. When you see a Rainbow Registered symbol, you know the business or organization meets a stringent set of standards to ensure 2SLGBTQI+ customers feel safe, welcomed, and accepted" (CGLCC, 2023).
WHY IS RAINBOW REGISTRATION IMPORTANT TO THE FIELD OF ELECTROLYSIS?
Electrolysis is one of many gender affirming treatments! Many transgender and gender-diverse individuals experience gender dysphoria, which is the distress or discomfort that can result from incongruence between their gender identity and their physical appearance. Electrolysis helps reduce dysphoria by permanently eliminating hair in areas that align with an individual's gender expression.
We want to ensure that our studio is culturally and clinically competent for 2SLGBTQI+ care. Thus, offering a truly inclusive environment that is committed to providing high-quality and compassionate service to all of our clients.
“My passion lies in service to my community and fulfilling my role as an agent of change in society. By cultivating a sense of professional competence, I see the value of the transformational capabilities of electrolysis. Permanent hair removal is not just about feeling silky smooth, but rather it is also an important service that provides gender affirming treatment.”
