The conference started as a result of there being little to no interest, support or research into LGBTIQ women’s health, by either mainstream or queer health organisations. Each year the conference attracts hundreds of women from around Australia who present on queer women’s health - including sexual, mental and physical health and the program is incredibly diverse. The basic aim is 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.
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.
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.
The conference acknowledges 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 work.
