This updated Issues Paper looks at issues faced by the LGBTI community in Western Australia.

LGBTI refers collectively to people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and/or intersex, and is the most commonly used way to refer to people who have a diverse gender identity or sexual orientation, or who are intersex.

The Commissioner for Children and Young People understands there are a range of terms and definitions that people use to define their gender or sexuality. The Commissioner’s office will use the broad term LGBTI to inclusively refer to all people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and intersex, as well as to represent other members of the community that use different terms to describe their diverse sexuality and/or gender.
