It’s important to come together as a community and discuss the health needs of our community and particularly the health needs of women in the LGBTQI community. The conference is so vibrant and full of energy. It’s an absolute buzz! There are so many different women from all over Australia. It’s really spiritually uplifting. I’ve got this feeling in the pit of my stomach which is just like ‘all that was really exciting, and what’s coming next?’ It’s a place to hear astounding things to hear stories, to hear the research, to hear from activists and from people who are working on the ground in the community. You can share a range of experiences and knowledge in a very safe environment. Inclusion and intersectionality are things that people are learning more about and are really hungry to understand. It’s both very serious and also just such a lovely warm kind of almost festive environment. So there’s always something special when you’re amongst your people. There’s this real sense of like who can I learn from and where can we go from there and how can we help each other. Such a diversity, such a rich array of experiences and stories, and that’s where we learn when we hear each other’s stories.
