Building a better picture of LGBTI Sistergirl and Brotherboy Ageing and Caring in Queensland

It’s on for Younger & Older! This is your opportunity to VOICE your experiences, hopes and concerns about ageing and living in Queensland.

This study seeks to understand whether there have been improvements in the attitudes, support and experiences of LGBTISGBB elders following 13 years of policy, legal and social developments, and to identify the gaps and needs that remain unaddressed, and new issues arising that can collectively inform the development of strategies to address the needs and concerns of older LGBTISGBB people in Queensland.

This revised survey includes old and new questions from the previous survey, considers the COVID pandemic, and includes people born with intersex variations, and Sistergirl and Brotherboy identifying persons.

Complete a confidential and anonymous survey to help us help you shape your ageing and aged care service provision, now and into the future.  Survey closes 30 June 2022
