Welcome to the Community Door portal on lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) people.

There are thousands of LGBTI people living in Queensland, in all parts of Queensland. Sexual orientation and gender identity is not a choice. LGBTI individuals often experience unique health disparities. Although the acronym LGBTIQ is used as an umbrella term, and the health needs of this community are often grouped together, each of these letters represents a distinct population with its own health and wellbeing concerns.

Promoting the social inclusion and health and wellbeing of LGBTI people can help Queensland achieve a fair society, with safe and caring communities, and a healthy society.

Support for family members is also important to encourage healthy relationships.

Mindhealthconnect provides information around the types of mental health issues that can affect LGBTI people as well as general resources on sexuality and mental health.

In this section you will find current news, resources and other information relevant to this topic.
