Marriage equality vote creates health risks for LGBTIQ community

Ballarat Community Health Signatory to a Victorian-wide Statement: Marriage equality vote creates health risks for LGBTIQ community

24 metropolitan and regional community health organisations from across the length and breadth of Victoria have today issued a joint statement in support of marriage equality.

Victoria’s community health sector has a long history of supporting marginalised communities and advocating for change that will reduce health inequality. Today’s public statement arises from a deep concern about the health impacts of a potential marriage equality postal survey on the health and wellbeing of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex and queer (LGBTIQ) community.
