ARCSHS Staff Recognised on LGBTIQ+ Taskforce

ARCSHS Deputy Director Adam Bourne continues on the Victorian Government's LGBTIQ+ Taskforce, with Rainbow Health Australia Director Marina Carman and Dr Sean Mulcahy joining associated working groups.

ARCSHS is pleased to announce the re-appointment of Associate Professor Adam Bourne to the Victorian Government’s Whole of Government LGBTIQ+ Taskforce for 2022, also continuing in his role as co-chair of the Taskforce’s Health and Wellbeing Working Group.

In addition, Director of Rainbow Health Australia Marina Carman continues as a member of the Health and Wellbeing Working Group, and we also welcome the new appointment of ARCSHS’ Dr Sean Mulcahy to the Taskforce’s LGBTIQ+ Justice Working Group.

Established in 2015, the Victorian LGBTIQ+ Taskforce plays a critical role working with the Labor Government on LGBTIQ+ issues and supports equality through legislative reform, new policies and programs.

The LGBTIQ+ Taskforce and its working groups are an essential voice for LGBTIQ+ people to the Victorian Government on issues that disproportionately affect the LGBTIQ+ community, and on issues which are experienced differently by LGBTIQ+ people.

The Taskforce has been closely involved in the development of Victoria’s first LGBTIQ Strategy, a document which will set the Victorian Government’s equality agenda by establishing the whole-of-government direction on LGBTIQ+ issues, and outlining priority actions for supporting LGBTIQ+ Victorians.

Working closely with our community partners, ARCSHS is honoured to continue helping further the health and wellbeing of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex and queer-identifying people, providing rigorous research and an evidence base to inform policy and practice.
