Meridian LGBTIQA+ Housing Position Paper

This paper was developed by Meridian in consultation with community members and service providers, including the Canberra Inclusive Partnership’s Service User Reference Group, YWCA Canberra, ACT Shelter and Havelock Housing. Meridian acknowledges the existing body of work done by national and international researchers into the issue of LGBTIQA+ homelessness, which has informed many of the recommendations within this paper.

We also acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the land that we work on, the Ngunnawal people, and pay our respects to Elders past, present, and emerging. We honour the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex, queer and asexual activists and advocates whose courage, determination, and strength have helped to make this a more just society. We celebrate the rich diversity of people’s bodies, genders, identities, sexualities, and relationships.
