Writing Themselves In Publications

Writing Themselves In is the largest national study series exploring the health and wellbeing of LGBTIQ young people in Australia. 

These studies have documented high levels of harm, and examined the impact that stigma and discrimination had on the health and wellbeing of LGBTIQ+ young people, as well as seeking to better understand who LGBTIQ+ young people turn to when in need.

Evidence from the Writing Themselves In studies enables organisations, services and government to make informed decisions about how to best support the health and wellbeing of LGBTIQ young people. Findings from the study inform the development of LGBTIQ-inclusive mainstream, and LGBTIQ-specific, youth policies, programs and services.

The List of publications include

  • Writing Themselves In 4 (2020)
  • From Blues to Rainbows (2014)
  • Writing Themselves In 3 (2005)
  • Writing Themselves In Again (2020)
  • Writing Themselves In (1998)
