Community Survey: Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander LGBTI, Brotherboys and Sistergirls

An Update About this survey

Thank you for your interest in completing the survey.

When we launched this survey, it was to inform the best way for the National LGBTI Health Alliance to work with people who are Aboriginal, Torres Strait and Australian South Sea Islanders and improve social and emotional wellbeing. 
 
The first week of the survey being active has shown us how important this work is and how much work needs to be done.
 
The Alliance believes that this work is too important to not be able to share the information with others and for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community organisations to be able to use the information to build a case for funding and support.
 
In this way, we have decided to pause our work on the survey for the moment and to take our work through a full process of Ethical Approval.  We’re not sure how long this will take, but we do know that we want to give as much power to this work as is possible.

 

We recognise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have unique priorities for social and emotional wellbeing. LGBTI services to need to embed Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives into service planning. 

The Alliance’s work with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities is supported by Tekwabi Giz

 


 

 

Acknowledgement of County

The National LGBTI Health Alliance acknowledges the Traditional Owners of Country throughout Australia and the Torres Strait Islands. We recognise their continuing connection to lands, waters, and communities. We acknowledge that these lands have been materially, ecologically and socially transformed through occupation by settlers and we acknowledge that this transformation does not erase history, sovereignty or continuing connections to culture. We acknowledge the work undertaken by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, not just for health but for justice. We pay our respects to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elders who came before, those that lead now, and those who will lead in the future.
