Teaching diversities: same sex attracted young people, CALD communities, and arts-based community education

Case Studies & Research
44 p.

The teaching diversities project has been funded by Victoria University and represents a collaboration with the Centre for Multicultural Youth in recognition of the particular needs (and risks) of doubly-marginalised young people who identify as both same sex-attracted, and those from multicultural backgrounds. The vulnerability of these young people hinges on the intersection of homophobia in some cultural communities and also racism within some lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) communities. This consultation's primary aims are: 1) to assess the needs of same sex-attracted (including gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and queer) or questioning young people from non-Anglo and culturally or linguistically diverse backgrounds. 2) to gather community based directives for arts projects addressing same sex attraction within culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) communities.
