Speaking Up, Speaking Out is a new project about building the skills and confidence of Tasmanians who are keen to help out and contribute to the improvement of the LGBTQIA+ community's equality and wellbeing.
The project is a partnership of Equality Tasmania and the Inglis Clark Centre For Democracy and Human Rights, funded by the Tasmanian Government's LGBTQIA+ Community Grants programme.
The survey will gauge the needs of queer Tasmanians and their allies, when it comes to advocacy, leadership and reporting.
We want LGBTIQ+ Tasmanians and their allies to tell us what their priorities are when it comes to advocacy and leadership so we can ensure our workshops as effective as possible," Project Coordinator Robin Banks says.
"The survey asks what kind of skills people want to acquire and how they would improve how the Tasmanian LGBTQIA+ community is represented."
