Dr Angela Dwyer will present on findings from the LGBTIQ+ Tasmania Community Survey, ‘LGBTIQ+ Tasmanians: Telling Us the Story’.
The Tasmanian Government funded the University of Tasmania to undertake a survey of LGBTIQ+ Tasmanians 16 years and over, to understand their experiences using Government services and programs. This is the first broad survey of its kind in Tasmania.
The webinar focuses on:
- An overview of data from the LGBTIQ+ Community Survey
- Key priorities identified in the survey
- Implications for LGBTIQ+ health and wellbeing policy
