About Us

Self determination


Black Rainbow is aims to identify and address the socioenvironmental factors affecting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander LGBQTI people. These factors and their impact are unknown. However, the evidence available regarding racism and homophobia and their links to mental health issues and deaths by suicide is alarming. The nuanced intersections of our Indignity and diverse genders and sexuality require further investigation.
