VPC Co-presents

Saturday 27 January, 1.00pm – 1.45pm 

How and why should we invest in queer people’s joy and in the mental health of LGBTIQA+? Well, that’s what we are going to discuss! Join us and get involved in figuring out how organisations, funding bodies, philanthropists, community members, allies, the broader mental health sector, and community can contribute to addressing these issues. 

This discussion will centre on how and why investing in queer joy radically and sustainably improves the mental and emotional health of the LGBTIQA+ community. This is especially important given the rise in homophobia, transphobia, and vitriol we have seen in the broader Australian community. We know that people who engage in joy more frequently, navigate life easier and with a bigger sense of hope. And so, we are interested in how queer people can find and engage in joy in the face of today’s world.
