Sexual Health Month with Women’s Health in the North

Jacinta and Jack kick-off sexual health month by speaking to Amelia and Tilly from the Sexual and Reproductive Health team at Women’s Health in the North (WHIN).

Tilly and Amelia talk about what kind of work WHIN does in the northern metropolitan region of Melbourne, the current barriers and gaps that they see in sexual and reproductive health, especially for LGBTIQA+ people.

We also discuss WHIN’s Freedom, Respect and Equity in Sexual Health (FRESH) plan, which aims for “all women and gender diverse people [to] freely exercise their rights to positive,pleasurable and affirming sexual and reproductive health outcomes.”

Tilly Mahoney is a cis bisexual woman, and is the Sexual and Reproductive Health Coordinator at WHIN.

Tilly has a Master of Public Health, and is passionate about freedom of choice, gender equity and LGBTQIA+ rights.

Amelia Arnold is a cis bisexual queer woman who works primarily in health education, research, training and advocacy.

Amelia oversees the sexual and reproductive health capacity building work at WHIN, and also works as a research associate with the Growing Queer Families Alliance at Monash University.

Amelia is also on the Board at Switchboard, volunteers with Rainbow Families Victoria and is an ex radio girlie, co-hosting the Triple Bi Pass podcast.

You can see Amelia and Tilly representing WHIN alongside GenWest at the LGBTIQ+ Women’s Health Conference in Melbourne, 24-25 October 2023.

You can find out more about the Freedom, Respect and Equity in Sexual Health (FRESH) plan on the Women’s Health in the North website – whin.org.au
