Evidence of LGBTIQA+ experiences is building. But we need more work that looks at the gaps in getting reliable, accurate and consistent data across all LGBTIQA+ groups and their families. People advocated for improved collection and better sharing of high-quality data about LGBTIQA+ Victorians. Data collection should include best practice methods of collecting data that is appropriate and includes how LGBTIQA+ people identify.
‘There’s a huge diversity in LGBTIQA+ communities and we need a more nuanced approach.’
