Health in Difference Conference 2021


Conference Theme “LGBTIQ+ Health and Wellbeing”

Health in Difference is Australia’s premier conference on the health and wellbeing of lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, intersex, queer and sexuality, gender, and bodily diverse people and communities throughout Australia.

Mornings | Fri 16 April | Fri 23 April |  Fri 30 April

In 2021 those two premier conferences will be hosted online over 3 consecutive Fridays in April. Health in Difference will run in the mornings and our LGBTI Ageing and Aged Conference will run over the afternoons. 

Moving these important conferences online comes with new challenges, but it will enable us to use advanced conference software to provide both live events and on-demand content, networking, chat, breakout workshops, and a series of online social events every Friday afternoon to allow participants to network and reflect.

The LGBTI Ageing and Aged Care conference is the leading event in Australia for aged, health and human service providers to develop their knowledge, skills and practice to meet the needs of LGBTI consumers.

We encourage submissions for all priority LGBTI populations. In deciding on the theme to submit a presentation under, consider who your target audience are. Practice-based abstracts are welcomed in all themes – consider whether your project is a good example of the translation of research into practice.
