About the conference

The LGBTIQ+ Women’s Health Conference focuses on the health and wellbeing needs of all LGBTIQ women within Australian communities. The event offers attendees a wide range of opportunities to discuss, engage with and explore these health needs as well as profile new and emerging research, innovative programs and services being delivered to address these needs in our communities.

Conference engagement statement

The LGBTIQ+ Women’s Conference is committed to meaningful inclusion, diversity and access. It aims to create safer spaces to strengthen the health and wellbeing of all LGBTIQ women, including Aboriginal women and Sistergirls, women of colour, women with disabilities, trans, gender diverse and intersex women.

We respect that experiences of lesbian, bisexual and queer sexuality can intersect with diverse gender experiences, intersex status and all forms of marginalisation that women experience. We acknowledge that striving for best practice and positive health outcomes for all women requires meaningful engagement and fostering a cross-sector response that embeds these principles in all aspects of our work.

Presented by: Thorne Harbour Health & ACON.
