Expression Australia has a vision for access, inclusion and equal opportunity, and aims to empower people who are Deaf or hard of hearing or experience barriers to inclusion, (including LGBTIQA+) to choose how they want to live.
Expression Australia has received funding from the NDIA to support the needs of an intersectional cohort of Deaf people who also identify as LGBTIQA+. Part of this work is to build partnerships with existing LGBTIQA+ organisations and services to improve accessibility and awareness of the specific needs of Deaf LGBTIQA+ people and communities. Expression Australia is thrilled to be working with All the Queens Men and access consultancy, Break a Finger, to improve accessibility and connection for the Deaf LGBTIQA+ community.
