A first for Australia: ACON’s Primary Prevention Project – LGBTQ+ Survey about the drivers of relationship violence

A first for Australia: ACON’s Primary Prevention Project – LGBTQ+ Survey about the drivers of relationship violence

ACON would like support promoting this survey to LGBTQ+ people in your networks: https://sayitoutloud.org.au/learn-more/survey-understanding-lgbtq-relationships

The survey is open to anyone who:

• Is LGBTQ+.
• Lives in Australia.
• Is over 18.

ACON’s national primary prevention project is a first for Australian queer and trans communities. Ahead of designing and executing a series of public-facing campaigns, we have launched this survey to gather data that will:

• Provide us with a deeper understanding of the drivers of violence and how they play out in LGBTQ+ intimate and sexual relationships.
• Allow us to deliver campaigns that are both community-led and evidence-based.
• Add to the existing and limited evidence base in support of developing and strengthening future primary prevention projects for LGBTQ+ people.

Primary prevention is about preventing violence before it starts – this is done by addressing and deconstructing the social drivers and attitudes that lead to violence.

Historically, primary prevention activities have been focused on the drivers of violence by (cis/het) men against (cis/het) women and it is only very recently that funding has been made available for primary prevention activities in LGBTQ+ communities. Some of the early (and limited) evidence suggests that the drivers of violence in LGBTQ+ relationships include, but are not limited to, rigid gender norms, inequality, prejudice, cisnormativity, heteronormativity, power and control.

Pride in Prevention (Rainbow Health Victoria 2020) is a useful evidence guide (and the first of its kind in Australia!) on primary prevention activities for LGBTQ+ communities, should you wish to learn a bit more about this important work.

Please feel free to make contact if you have any questions or would like to arrange LGBTQ+ specific resources for your service or program.

The survey closes on 31 March.
