Because any person using a health or community service in Victoria may be same-sex attracted, trans, gender diverse or have an intersex variation, it is important for all services to consider how they can become more inclusive of people who are LGBTIQ+.
Services should aim to become more responsive to issues related to sexual orientation, gender identity and intersex variations, and to understand the specific health and wellbeing needs of subgroups within the LGBTIQ+ population.
