Tasmanian LGBTIQ+ advocacy projec seeks feedback on community needs

Equality-TasmaniaA Tasmanian LGBTIQ+ advocacy and leadership program is seeking responses to a survey about the needs of the community. Speaking Up, Speaking Out is a new project about building the skills and confidence of Tasmnaians who want to do more for LGBTIQ+ equality and wellbeing.

The project is a partnership of Equality Tasmania and the Inglis Clark Centre for Democracy and Human Rights, and has been funded by the Tasmanian Government’s LGBTI Community Grants program. The project has launched a survey to gauge the needs of LGBTIQ+ Tasmanians and their allies when it comes to advocacy, leadership and reporting.

Project coordinators, Robin Banks and Rodney Croome, said the survey results will be used to develop workshops across the state later in 2020 and into 2021. “We want LGBTIQ+ Tasmanians and their allies to tell us what their priorities are when it comes to advocacy and leadership so we can ensure our workshops as effective as possible.” said Ms Banks.

“The survey asks what kind of skills people want to acquire and how they would improve how the Tasmanian LGBTIQ+ community is represented.”
