Black Rainbow is a national advocacy platform and touchpoint for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Queer, Transgender, and Intersex (LGBQTI) peoples. We support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander LGBQTI people through a variety of community projects and initiatives that we have, and continue, to develop. We call these initiatives Contagion of Love projects.
We are a non-profit social enterprise that is 100% Indigenous owned and operated. Black Rainbow is premised by advocacy, leadership, and solutions which identify and address social and cultural determinants of wellbeing as they relate to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians whom identify as LGBQTI.
At Black Rainbow, we believe that identifying and addressing the social determinants of health is central to improving Indigenous Australian LGBQTI health outcomes. This includes LGBQTI-phobias and racism. Through our grassroots and diverse approaches, we strive to alleviate a wide range of health outcomes including the prevalence of suicide and non-suicidal self-harm in our communities.
One of the pillars of Black Rainbow is the philosophy of value-based economics1 and as such a synergy of values with our partners is fundamental to our success. To partner with us please use the contact page here.
