Download (4.87 MB)
This report describes Victoria-specific findings from Writing Themselves In 4: a national survey of health and wellbeing among LGBTQA+ young people in Australia. Writing Themselves In 4 involved an online survey of people living in Australia aged between 14 and 21 years who identified as LGBTIQA+. The survey was open for completion between the 2nd September and the 28th October 2019. In total, there were 6,418 complete and valid responses to the survey.

This report summarises key findings from Writing Themselves In 4 that are specific to participants who were resident in Victoria (VIC) at the time of completion. It is designed to complement the national report by providing data relating to specific topics broken down at the state level. This report covers issues that can at times represent challenges for LGBTQA+ young people (such as mental health, discrimination or abuse) as well as aspects of life that can enhance health and wellbeing (such as supportive relationships and community engagement).
