A WA LGBTI Health Strategy is being developed to raise awareness of the specific health and mental health challenges of LGBTI people. This is our chance to have a say about the health and wellbeing priorities of LGBTI Western Australians.

These community consultations are facilitated by LGBTI people and community services for LGBTI people, in partnership with ally agencies. They will be conversational forums to connect and share. We know our voices must be heard to develop a strategy that will effectively promote our health and wellbeing.

You can help shape the future of health and wellbeing for LGBTI Western Australians.

Acknowledgements

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander FlagWe  acknowledge  the  traditional  custodians  of  the  land  across  Western  Australia  and pay  our  respects  to  their  elders  past,  present  and  emerging.  We  encourage  participation  by  Aboriginal  and  Torres  Strait  Islander  people  in  these  consultations  and  for  folks  to  contact  us  about  further  opportunities  to  provide  input.

 

Pride Flag We  use  LGBTI  as  a  recognisable  acronym  to  refer  to lesbian,  gay,  bisexual,  trans,  intersex,  and  all  queer, non-binary,  asexual,  same gender  attracted  and  gender  diverse  folks.  We  acknowledge  the  strengths  and  limitations  of  this  in  accurately  representing  our  diverse  bodies,  identities,  relationships,  sexualities,  genders,  and  lived  experiences.  We  recognise  that LGBTI  people  and  populations  are  incredibly  diverse  and  intersectional  and  may  be  disparate  and  isolated.

 

Intersex-FlagWe  acknowledge  that  intersex  is  an  umbrella  term  that  refers  to  people  born  with  variations  of  sex characteristics  and  that  many  intersex  people  may  not  identify  or  connect  with  LGBTI  communities. We  encourage  intersex  Western  Australians  to  participate  in  these  consultations  as  appropriate  and  are  seeking  additional  opportunities  to  consult  with  intersex  Western  Australians  for  the  WA  LGBTI  Health  Strategy  development.
