New capacity building project focusing on LGBTI disabled Australians

Posted on: Fri 9 Nov 2018

Thorne Harbour Health, which is a LGBTI sexual health and education organisation from Victoria is embarking on a peer-led capacity building project, focusing primarily on inclusion and increasing visibility for LGBTI Australians with a disability.

Jake Lewis is the LGBTI disability capacity-building worker for Thorne Harbour Health and is overseeing this project. Jake discusses the project with De-Stigmatised‘s Jarad and looks at how it could change attitudes and behaviours within Australia’s LGBTI community towards those who have disabilities.
