LBQ Women’s Health Conference 2017


The community needs to know about what are
the health issues that are facing us It’s important to be able to talk about
those things in a way that’s constructive and that doesn’t just
engender a flame war I can feel a momentum in this sector
both in terms of research We’re very DIY. We do things. And I think it’s a
healthy thing stepping outside the box It’s really exciting to come to this
conference and to be able to sit with other women and feel comfortable The social energy at this conference has been electric We’ve got academics, we’ve got
activists, we’ve got elders we’ve got community leaders, we’ve got young people There’s quite a few brown faces at this conference and I think that’s fantastic Learning more about LBQ women’s health priorities This conference is like a
greatest hits package Yeah, it’s in Melbourne next year I think, so my hometown I will definitely be here next year Everyone should come to this But also more generally anyone who works in health equality, anti-discrimination I want to see more mainstream health care providers And I think it will be an
important opportunity again to continue to engage policymakers, government
officials and others who we really want to engage in the conversation about how do
we improve the health and wellbeing of our communities
