LGBTIQA+ Peer-led Services Survey

This survey is for people who are 18 years and older and identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans/transgender, queer, agender, non-binary, gender fluid, asexual and pansexual, or have an intersex variation, and other sexuality, gender and bodily diverse people who identify as being part of the LGBTIQA+ community and who have previously accessed an LGBTIQA+ community controlled and peer-led organisation. Organisations led by LGBTIQA+ people have long recognised the need for peer-led services and advocated for their benefit, however there are few studies into the role of peer-led services in meeting the health needs of LGBTIQA+ people. This survey aims to fill this gap in knowledge by learning from LGBTIQA+ people about their experiences with LGBTIQA+ peer-led services and their value to the LGBTIQA+ community.

This survey has been initiated by Meridian in the ACT and supported by organisations that have a history in the community HIV movement, originally known as AIDS Councils, including ACON, Meridian, NT AIDS and Hepatitis Council, Tasmanian AIDS and Hepatitis Council, Thorne Harbour Health and WA AIDS Council. These organisations seek to be deeply embedded within their communities and provide a trusted and credible voice to governments and other stakeholders, and deliver direct education, outreach, support and advocacy to LGBTIQA+ communities.

An LGBTIQA+ community-controlled peer-led organisation is an independent incorporated, not-for-profit organisation that:

• has been initiated by, is governed by and operated by LGBTIQA+ people for LGBTIQA+ people
• is based within those communities and delivers culturally appropriate and safe services that build strength and empowerment in LGBTIQA+ communities
• is accountable to its members, who are the LGBTIQA+ community.

The survey is anonymous and will take roughly 10 minutes to complete. You can access the survey here:
