Episode 12: LGBTIQ+ Disability Research Report

NOTE: A transcript of this episode can be found HERE

The Latest in LGBTIQ+ Health and Policy is a podcast that brings you the health and wellbeing hot topic discussions that matter to LGBTIQ+ people.

In December the Australian Research Centre in Sex Health and Society or ARCSHS, and the Living with Disability Research Centre at La Trobe University, released a report entitled “Violence, abuse, neglect and exploitation of LGBTQA+ people with disability: a secondary analysis of data from two national surveys”. The report is a sobering reminder of the significant challenges and disparities that LGBTQA+ people with disability experience, especially when other intersections of marginalisation are considered.

On this episode of The Latest, host Triana Butler is joined by Associate Professor, Adam Bourne (he/him), the Acting Director of ARCSHS, and Margherita Coppolino (she/her), a disability and inclusion consultant.
