Event description
Relationships and sexuality forum for people with a disability and those that support them

About this Event

cohealth, with the support of City of Yarra, Darebin City Council and Melbourne Polytechnic have been working together in the development Diversexy, a peer-led program that engages people with a disability around the issues of relationships, sexual health, pleasure and human rights.

To celebrate the development so far and build upon the work in the northern region, we are putting on Let’s Talk About Sex - a three-hour sexuality and relationships forum for people with a disability and those that support them

Participants in the forum will:

  • Learn about relationships, sexuality and rights, and self-advocacy
  • Talk about how to support a family member or client with relationships, sexuality and sexual health
  • Talk about what you would like to see happen in the northern region to support people with a disability to have good sexual health and healthy relationships
  • Hear more about Diversexy - the exciting new sexual rights program that is in development

The Forum will be supported by the following presenters:

  • Family Planning Victoria
  • Jax Jacki Brown & Margherita Coppolino, LGBTIQA+ and disability rights activists
  • Zoe Dorrity & Bianca Evans from Women with Disabilities Victoria
  • Plus more to be announced!

Please let us know of any access, dietary or interpreter requirements
