Adam O. Hill, Adam Bourne, Ruth McNair, Marina Carman and Anthony Lyons

Private Lives 3 (PL3) is the third iteration of the Private Lives surveys. PL3 is Australia’s largest national survey of the health and wellbeing of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex and queer (LGBTIQ) people to date. It was conducted by the Australian Research Centre in Sex, Health and Society (ARCSHS) at La Trobe University. The survey provides vital information for health professionals, service providers, community organisations and governments to better understand and support the health and wellbeing of LGBTIQ people in Australia. PL3 was jointly funded by the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services and the Victorian Department of Premier and Cabinet. This report presents data from participants of PL3 who were living in Australia at the time of the survey.

The #LGBTIHealthPledge 

The unprecedented public health crisis we face presents enormous challenges to governments and health systems across Australia. Beyond the immediate health impacts of COVID-19, the social and economic consequences are serious and far-reaching.

The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic may exacerbate existing health inequalities. Some populations that experience health inequalities are disproportionately affected and may be further marginalised when accessing crucial health and social wellbeing services. This includes LGBTI people.

We know that COVID-19 does not discriminate; nor should our health response. This is why we have developed the #LGBTIHealthPledge campaign – to promote LGBTI inclusive principles to ensure that LGBTI people continue to receive culturally appropriate and affirmative care during this challenging time.

CAMPAIGN GOALS: 

  • Build awareness around the unique challenges LGBTI people face when accessing the health system during the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Promote principles of LGBTI inclusive practice to ensure that LGBTI people continue to receive culturally safe and high-quality services now and into the future.
  • Build confidence within LGBTI communities that mainstream health and wellbeing services across Australia will continue to consider their unique health needs and circumstances.
  • Reduce discrimination and stigma against LGBTI in healthcare settings and thereby improving their health outcomes.

Take the #LGBTIHealthPledge today and share our tips for LGBTI inclusive practice. Through social solidarity and understanding we can ease the impact of COVID-19 on LGBTI communities.
