Sexuality, diversity and ageing

Sexuality, diversity and ageing

Catherine Barrett coordinates a program promoting the sexual health of older people at Gay and Lesbian Health Victoria and the Australian Research Centre in Sex Health and Society.

Catherine had a Big FAT Idea 2009 which was around creating a network supporting people providing services to older lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (GLBTI) Australians. That big fat idea resulted in the establishment of Val’s Café - a network for aged care service providers, which there are now 180 aged care service providers that are members of Val's Café.

Catherine tells a number of stories of older GLBTI Australians, and their experiences in and out of aged care services.
