Many Indigenous LGBTIQ+ people don’t feel fully accepted

New research reveals that many Indigenous LGBTIQ+ people do not feel fully accepted by Indigenous or queer communities – and their needs are often not being met by health, education and social services. The ‘Breaking the Silence’ research project, led by Indigenous LGBTIQ+ researchers at Kurongkurl Katitjin Centre for Indigenous Australian Education and Research at Edith Cowan University, is an original study which examines the experiences of Indigenous LGBTIQ+ people living in Western Australia. Sian Bennett, Gamilaroi woman and Lecturer at ECU, spoke to The Daily’s Toby Hemmings about the project.
