52: #52 | From The VISUAL in Carlow: LGBTI Voices Report
4 days ago
This week on Sparking Change, Dil records from the VISUAL in Carlow, as she is joined by Joanne Donohoe of the Carlow Community Development partnership, and Hayley Fox Roberts, the consultant and author of the LGBTI voices report.
The LGBTI Voices report was a research report into the needs and capacity of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex population of Carlow. The study was conducted through online surveys, one-to-one interviews and focus groups.
Dil, Joanne and Hayley discuss the findings of the report, including what the needs of the LGBTQI+ community in Carlow are—which were found out by asking members of the LGBTQI+ community within Carlow—as well as how something can be put in place to meet these needs.
Dil, Joanne and Hayley also discuss potential problems of the LGBTQI+ community with doctors, and ways that these problems can be fixed, as well as prejudice for minorities within minorities, and internalised inferiority within the LGBTQI+ community.Read more »
