Victorian LGBTIQA+ Disability Survey

Are you LGBTIQA+? Do you have a disability? The LGBTIQA+ Disability Collective is launching a self-advocacy alliance, and they want to know what is important to other LGBTIQA+ individuals living with a disability.

Participate in the survey

This survey is for any LGBTIQA+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans or gender diverse, intersex, queer, asexual or other) person living with a disability in Victoria. Your answers will inform how a self-advocacy group will work best.

Self-advocacy groups are groups run by and for people living with a disability. Self-advocacy is important because it gives people with a disability an opportunity to learn how to speak up for themselves, especially when they are treated differently or unjustly.

Self-advocacy differs from some other forms of advocacy because it puts people with a disability first. Sometimes people advocate for people with a disability, and they do so in a way that really respects that person. Other times however, people try to advocate for people with a disability in a way the person with disability does not think is helpful. Sometimes, families or carers need help to support their family members to take risks and have responsibilities in their lives.
