It is our responsibility to look after each other during the debate, discussion and rhetoric of the next few weeks of the postal survey. And no one more so than our LGBTi+ friends, neighbours, family members and colleagues.
If you or someone you know is struggling, please call Working It Out on 6231 1200.
If you are a Community Services Organisation and you would like to access some training to ensure you are providing the support needed, Working it Out can support your organisation.
Tasmania Police has trained LGBTI liaison officers to provide advice and assistance. They can be contacted via the Police Assistance Line 131 444.
LGBTI people who experience bullying, discrimination or harassment can also report it to Equal Opportunity Tasmania (the office of the Anti-Discrimination Commissioner) on 1300 305 062 or through the Equal Opportunity Tasmania website.
