Location:
Law Lecture Theatre, UWA

Organised by:
Blackstone Law Students Society


The Blackstone Society’s Queer Portfolio presents their first-ever event: a presentation on LGBTI+ Awareness and Inclusivity in the Law School delivered by Lorna Graham-Geraghty, Training Team Leader at Living Proud LGBTI Community Services of WA. Lorna will be presenting on LGBTI+ awareness and inclusivity within the Law School, exploring the following:

• Understanding the terms lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, and queer;
• Understanding the needs of LGBTI+ people;
• Statistics on the mental health and wellbeing of LGBTI+ people;
• How homophobia, biphobia and transphobia operate at different levels in society; and
• Providing participants with some strategies for better supporting LGBTI+ students in the Law School and at UWA, whether in the classroom or otherwise.

All students and staff, whether LGBTI+ or not, are welcome to attend. This should be an incredibly worthwhile experience to help improve understanding of the issues facing gender-diverse, same-sex attracted and intersex people within the Law School and within broader society in general.

The talk will be held in the Law Lecture Theatre
