MindOUT Webinar - Culturally and Linguistically Diverse LGBTI People

Ethnic identity is a person’s sense of belonging to a particular ethnic group. This involves participating in and negotiating that group’s cultural, religious and other traditions, beliefs and values.

Being a LGBTIQ person raised within an ethnic group requires the negotiation and interweaving of varying and multiple regulations, expectations and social codes in relation to gender, sexuality, faith and ethnicity. LGBTIQ people from diverse ethnic and religious backgrounds require various policies, practices and other strategies to be implemented in education systems, queer community and ethno-religious community health services, and in the wider society’s health services

Dr Judy Tang is a Neuropsychologist and President of the Australian GLBTIQ Multicultural Council (AGMC). She is an advocate and keen educator on issues and equality barriers for people who identify as multicultural and LGBTIQ – both within the LGBTIQ community and within the multicultural and multifaith communities. She is additionally a committee member of the Victoria Gay and Lesbian Rights Lobby (VGLRL), and the National Convenor of the Australian Psychological Society’s (APS) Psychology and Culture Interest Group. She has been appointed a Multicultural Champion for 2018 by the Victoria Multicultural Commission.  To unwind, she enjoys playing video games, watching anime and reading manga.
