Nexus Primary Health celebrates our LGBTIQ community

Nexus Primary Health is committed to being an inclusive organisation that celebrates our diverse community. Nexus staff demonstrated their support by participating in International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia, Interphobia and Transphobia (IDAHOBIT) and Midsumma Pride March events.

IDAHOBIT unites people globally to acknowledge the resilience of LGBTIQ communities and draws attention to the work needed to combat discrimination. Sex and gender-based discrimination creates environments where people feel unsafe and feel they cannot be their unique selves.

Nexus staff attended Mitchell Shire Council’s IDAHOBIT event with community members and other partners, including Victoria Police and The Bridge. Together, we brought awareness to this important day by raising the rainbow flag. They continued the celebrations at Midsumma Pride March, marching alongside health and Council regional partners as part of the Pride in the North group.

Chief Executive Officer Amanda Mullins said “Nexus wants to provide safe, welcoming, and inclusive services for our LGBTIQ community. We are doing this through the Nexus Diversity Committee and their work towards Rainbow Tick Accreditation”.

Rainbow Tick Accreditation ensures that LGBTIQ inclusive practices are implemented throughout Nexus’ systems, policies, and environments. Nexus also runs two LGBTI Social Groups – Liquorice Allsorts for youth aged 14 to 25, and a group for people aged over 25.

If you are from the LGBTIQ community and want to become involved in Nexus’ Rainbow Tick process, the Social Groups or have any feedback, please get in contact with the Health and Diversity Team on 1300 77 33 52.
