Findings from LGBTIQ+ Tasmanians: Telling Us the Story - LGBTIQ+ Health Australia

Findings from LGBTIQ+ Tasmanians: Telling Us the Story

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
