LGBTIQ Inclusive Primary Prevention in Conversation with Rainbow Health Victoria

LGBTIQ Inclusive Primary Prevention in Conversation with Rainbow Health Victoria

LGBTIQ communities experience family and intimate partner violence at rates equal to or higher than non-LGBTIQ people. But, what are the complexities that drive this violence?

Join us in conversation with Jackson Fairchild of Rainbow Health Victoria (RHV) as they discuss RHV’s latest research findings on the drivers of family and intimate partner violence for LGBTIQ communities, and ways to challenge them. Jackson will unpack questions such as:

  • What are the myths about family and intimate partner violence as experienced by LGBTIQ people?
  • What drives family and intimate partner violence in LGBTIQ communities? And what does it have in common with violence against women?
  • What does LGBTIQ inclusive prevention messaging look like?
  • What actions can prevention of violence against women organisations and practitioners take to support LGBTIQ community organisations?
