1st National Survey of the Health and Well-Being of Older LGBTI Australians

the project

Rainbow Ageing is a national project that explores the lives of older lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) Australians. The project seeks to understand the specific health and well-being needs of older LGBTI Australians and ultimately aims to stimulate and guide reforms to policy as well as to health and aged care services. It is conducted by the Australian Research Centre in Sex, Health and Society at La Trobe University, in collaboration with researchers at Southern Cross University, the University of Washington , University of New England and Alice's Garage and in partnership with the Council on the Ageing , National LGBTI Health Alliance , Carers Australia, and SANE Australia. The study is funded by the Australian Research Council. This is the first national Australian study to specifically focus on the health and well-being of older LGBTI adults.
