Health in Difference is Australasia’s premier conference on the health and wellbeing of lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, intersex, queer and other sexuality, sex and gender diverse (LGBTI) people.
It is being held in Sydney from April 29 – May 1 this year.
Health in Difference is a unique forum drawing together community organisation representatives, health practitioners, researchers, academics, policy makers, advocates, community members and others interested in health and wellbeing, gender, sex, and sexuality to ‘do diversity’, share their knowledge, network, learn, and laugh.
Under the overriding theme of ‘doing diversity’, Health in Difference will address key concerns for LGBTI people, including but not limited to mental health and suicide, ageing, violence, experiences of young people, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, culturally and linguistically diverse people and other specific groups, alcohol and other drugs, health promotion strategies, parenting and health service access.
The topics are considered in relation to five themes:
* Social Inclusion, Exclusion and Resilience: A Social View of Health
* Indigenous Health and Wellbeing: Culture, Context and Colonisation
* Sex and Gender Diversity: Differences within Diversity
* Community: The Changing Natures of Our Relationships
* Politics, Evidence and Practice: Creating Change
