To ensure cultural integrity and grasp honest opinions while engaging the community for the research project, BlaQ Aboriginal Corporation called upon our membership and general community via an Expression of Interest process, to allow participants to self-nominate and provide their stories.

This report sets out key findings from a project investigating the social, emotional and cultural wellbeing of Indigenous LGBTIQ+ people in NSW. The aim of the study was to understand the experiences of Indigenous LGBTIQ+ people to understand what works, what doesn’t and to develop culturally and gender/sexuality appropriate service provision. The project took a strengths-based approach and focused on the experiences, needs, successes, achievements and perspectives of Indigenous LGBTIQ+ people in overcoming challenges to their wellbeing.

The report is made up of summaries of findings from face-to-face interviews with young Indigenous LGBTIQ+ people aged 14-25 years, an online survey, yarning circles held with young people, Elders & service providers. The interviews, survey and yarning circles were the foundation for the Dalarinji Roadmap.
