LGBTQIA
Vol. 20 No 4 | Summer 2018
The Australian Human Rights Commission (AHRC) reports that, 'due to a lack of comprehensive, publicly available data, it is difficult to estimate the total LGBTQIA population in Australia. Australians of diverse sexual orientation, sex or gender identity may account for up to 11 per cent of the Australian population'. This is a very large number of Australians and means that many of our patients and colleagues will identify as LGBTQIA. We have an obligation to treat the LGBTQIA community in the same way that we call out the discrimination and racism that discourages young Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander and Māori women from seeking antenatal care in pregnancy. In this issue of O&G Magazine, the editors have brought together a group of experts to shine light on the health of LGBTQIA Australians and New Zealanders. Remember that light is made up of all the colours of the rainbow.
