Lesson in LGBTI 101
As part of preparing for the Regional Community of Practice under the scope of Ro Allen, Commissioner of Gender & Sexuality, Daniel Witthaus visited Robinvale to take a few of our staff members and the Robinvale Community Safety committee through a short lesson in LGBTI 101.
For almost 20 years Daniel has challenged homophobia in Australian schools and rural communities.
With the National Institute for Challenging Homophobia Education (NICHE) supports lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) young people in rural and remote areas of Australia, his goal to help prevent rural LGBTI youth suicide and make the lives of all young people in these areas safer.
Daniel’s presentation highlighted critical times in a LGBTI person’s life and how we, as individuals and communities can make this safe and inclusive for us all.
