The Launch of Be Proud Tasmania

On November 3rd at Mawson’s Pavilion the Minister for Community Development – Cassy O’Connor,  launched Be Proud Tasmania.

Partner organisations the Tasmania Council on AIDS Hepatitis and Related Diseases, the Tasmanian Gay and Lesbian Rights Group and Working It Out believe the evidence gained through Be Proud Tasmania will support community, education and health submissions to address prejudice and discrimination at all levels of society. 

This project aims to collect the stories and statistics of those who experience discrimination or prejudice related to their sexuality and or gender and the anecdotal evidence of the fear of this discrimination which for some people occurs on a daily basis.   As many of us are aware, this can impact dramatically on an individual’s life, education and participation in the community.

The $30,000 grant for this project comes from a three-year fund established to meet the Tasmania Together benchmarks of reducing discrimination, prejudice and hate crime against LGBTI Tasmanians. The fund was a Green election commitment, which was announced in the 2010 State Budget.

The investment in this project is not for a minority of the population but rather it addresses issues in the broader community.  Incidents of discrimination fear and prejudice are detrimental to us all.

The two consultants working on the project are Dr Nicole Asquith and Chris Fox, both of whom bring a wealth of experience to their roles. 

Contact WIO if you would like to help promote this vital project – come and get some Be Proud Cards and distribute them.  The more people who know about this project the greater the participation rate and the more valuable the outcomes.  Go to beproudtasmania.com.

sounds political to me, I am not proud any more I was up to 2 and half years ago .I asked for help from w.i.o. because I needed to move as iwas on crutches .from acrushed vertebrae . but all I got was people mocking me because I cried a lot well I don't cry any more as I got help from a straight organization it seems you pick and choose who you want to help itsgood politics I cant socialise because I feel that every body knows my business
