As organisations, leaders and allies of diverse lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) communities, we stand united in our call on all Australian governments to ensure that every person can go to school, work or access services free from discrimination.
Australians voted for fairness and equality last year, not to entrench discrimination against LGBTI people and their families.
The Silver Rainbow LGBTI Aged Care Awareness Training Project is managed by the National LGBTI Heath Alliance and is being delivered collaboratively with project partners across every state and territory in Australia. It is funded by the Australian Government Department of Health until June 2020.
Rainbow Families events are an opportunity for families with LGBTIQ identifying parents and/ or children to come together as families to connect and celebrate their family’s uniqueness in a safe, supportive, and non-judgemental environment. Events provide a great opportunity for families to form new friendships, or catch up for fun activities with existing friends. Each event reflects the Council's values of Respect, Inclusiveness, Partnership and Empowerment, and have lasting positive impacts on our overall community.
The ACT and NSW have both seen an increase in multi-drug-resistant shigellosis cases acquired through male-to-male sexual contact which are resistant to all recommended oral antibiotics.
