Out In Suburbia: The Untold Story of LGBTIQ+ People in Australia's Outer Suburbs is a  hybrid information-sharing and meaning-making seminar to examine new research and its implications for LGBTIQ+ people in outer suburban areas in Australia, and those who serve them.

Join us for a thought-provoking seminar that challenges conventional wisdom on the intersection of mental health, wellbeing and place in LGBTIQ+ communities. Discover groundbreaking research by the Australian Research Centre in Sex, Health and Society and other LGBTIQ+ health leaders, shedding light on the under-explored realities of LGBTIQ+ people in Australia's outer suburbs.

This event, fueled by the insights of the LGBTIQ+ community, will unite experts from rural, regional, and community sectors, alongside local government stakeholders, to delve into the implications of this research. Expect brief presentations from diverse perspectives, interactive discussions, and a collaborative exploration of how this research can shape the future for providers, policymakers, and researchers. Don't miss this opportunity to deepen your understanding and contribute to fostering positive change.
