This occasion was planned in April; however the federal government’s planned postal survey on marriage equality, and the negative impact this will have on LGBTI communities, has greatly increased the necessity of this day.</p> <p>As representatives of Victoria’s diverse faith and multicultural communities we would like to say the following:</p> <p>Faith has been a source of both solace and suffering for many LGBTI Victorians; many continue to cherish their faith community but too many have been forced to leave those communities behind due to condemnation of LGBTI people.</p> <p>We know that many LGBTI Victorians from faith and culturally diverse backgrounds continue to face exclusion and rejection from their families, their communities and their places of worship, and also from parts of the broader LGBTI community.</p> <p>We also know discrimination and conversion therapy has a devastating impact upon the mental health and well-being of LGBTI people. And we know that LGBTI people from all backgrounds experience significantly higher levels of mental distress, self-harm and suicide than heterosexuals. This will only be exacerbated by the divisive debate if the postal survey on marriage equality goes ahead.</p> <p>As faith and community leaders, we recognise that supportive communities help to protect and nourish the self-esteem of LGBTI Victorians and provide a sense of belonging and worth. We commit to treating LGBTI Victorians with respect and compassion, seek to continue the development of inclusive faith-based resources, and work towards creating safe and affirmative spaces in our communities for LGBTI people and their families.</p> <p>All Victorians are entitled to live their lives free from fear, exclusion, discrimination, and violence. We call for all Victoria’s communities, including faith communities, to take a strong stand against discrimination in all its forms.</p> </div> <strong class="field-label-inline">Read more about:</strong> <a href="/taxonomy/term/174" hreflang="en">Faith/Religion</a> </div> Tue, 12 Sep 2017 02:28:41 +0000 Sunil Patel 1673 at https://www.glhv.org.au Primary Prevention of Family Violence Against People From LGBTI Communities https://www.glhv.org.au/report/primary-prevention-family-violence-against-people-lgbti-communities <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">Primary Prevention of Family Violence Against People From LGBTI Communities</span> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span>Sunil Patel</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">14 August 2018 - 2:12am</span> <div class="field field--name-field-author field--type-string field--label-inline"> <div class="field__label">Author</div> <div class="field__item">Commissioned by the Victorian State Government</div> </div> Tue, 14 Aug 2018 02:12:05 +0000 Sunil Patel 1678 at https://www.glhv.org.au Safe Space Inclusive Services https://www.glhv.org.au/report/safe-space-inclusive-services <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">Safe Space Inclusive Services</span> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span>Sunil Patel</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">13 August 2018 - 6:10am</span> <div class="field field--name-field-author field--type-string field--label-inline"> <div class="field__label">Author</div> <div class="field__item">Maria Pallotta-Chiarolli</div> </div> Mon, 13 Aug 2018 06:10:14 +0000 Sunil Patel 1677 at https://www.glhv.org.au A Closer Look at Private Lives 2 - Report https://www.glhv.org.au/report/closer-look-private-lives-2-report <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">A Closer Look at Private Lives 2 - Report</span> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span>Sunil Patel</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">1 April 2015 - 1:11am</span> <div class="field field--name-field-author field--type-string field--label-inline"> <div class="field__label">Author</div> <div class="field__item">William Leonard, Anthony Lyons, Emily Bariola</div> </div> Wed, 01 Apr 2015 01:11:05 +0000 Sunil Patel 1610 at https://www.glhv.org.au LGBTI videos https://www.glhv.org.au/video/lgbti-videos <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">LGBTI videos</span> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span>Sunil Patel</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">11 April 2014 - 8:32am</span> Fri, 11 Apr 2014 08:32:49 +0000 Sunil Patel 1560 at https://www.glhv.org.au
