Lesbian, gay, bi, trans, intersex, and bodily, gender and sexually diverse people
Beyond Blue celebrates the strength, resilience and diversity of LGBTI communities. We believe that the recognition that marriage equality is an issue of equity was an important step towards improving the mental health of LGBTI people. Beyond Blue is proud to celebrate diversity and to have stood up for equality in our community.
We continue to advocate for non-discriminating communities, systems, policies and institutions, because we know discrimination can lead to mental health conditions and suicide. Marriage equality isn’t the end of the journey for LGBTI communities – so we’re going to keep advocating for change.
See our website for more information on:
– The impact of discrimination
– Developing an action plan
And a range of specific programs including:
Wingmen – expert advice, resources and online support for gay men who are worried their partner or friend may have anxiety or depression.

Families like mine – a guide for parents and families of LGBTI young people or who are questioning their sexuality or gender identity.
