Beyond Homophobia: Meeting the needs of same sex attracted and gender questioning (SSAGQ) young people in Victoria - A policy blueprint Report uri icon

abstract

  • Beyond homophobia traces an arc, a rainbow that moves from a time when homophobia was the norm, embedded in policy and practice, to a future in which the diversity of sexual orientations and gender identities is valued and nurtured. The arc spans the current moment where, despite increasing legal and social recognition, gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender (GLBT) people continue to be subject to much higher levels of violence, harassment and discrimination (Flood & Hamilton, 2005: Leonard et al., 2008; Victorian Gay and Lesbian Rights Lobby, 2000).
