Understanding sexuality

For bicultural and community workers who want to learn more about how to support GLBTIQ women from immigrant and refugee communities.



The Understanding Sexuality workshop is based on a report published by MCWH in 2011 called Coming out, coming home or inviting people in? Supporting Same-sex attracted women from immigrant and refugee communities.

The workshop is aimed at community and bicultural workers to improve their understanding of the issues facing their GLBTIQ community members and as a result, build their capacity to support same-sex attracted women from their communities.

The workshop covers:

  • Diversity within sexuality
  • Health issues of same sex attracted women
  • Disclosure (coming out)
