LGBTQIA+

People’s genders, bodies, relationships and sexualities can affect their health and wellbeing in all parts of their lives – including their sexual and reproductive health.

LGBTQIA+ communities have historically been leaders in sexual health promotion and activism. However, due to social stigma, discrimination and lack of knowledge from health professionals, people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex and asexual and other sexuality, gender, and bodily diverse people and communities (LGBTQIA+) can be at risk of poorer sexual and reproductive health. 

LGBTQIA+ health services 

In Victoria, there are many health services that work to provide support to the LGBTQIA+ community.
