Black Rainbow is a national advocacy platform and touchpoint for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Queer, Transgender, and Intersex (LGBQTI) peoples. We support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander LGBQTI people through a variety of community projects and initiatives that we have, and continue, to develop. We call these initiatives Contagion of Love projects.
We are a non-profit social enterprise that is 100% Indigenous owned and operated. Black Rainbow is premised by advocacy, leadership, and solutions which identify and address social and cultural determinants of wellbeing as they relate to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians whom identify as LGBQTI.
At Black Rainbow, we believe that identifying and addressing the social determinants of health is central to improving Indigenous Australian LGBQTI health outcomes. This includes LGBQTI-phobias and racism. Through our grassroots and diverse approaches, we strive to alleviate a wide range of health outcomes including the prevalence of suicide and non-suicidal self-harm in our communities.

Resources For Services
This resource is part of the Rainbow eQuality Guide, developed by the Victorian Government LGBTI Taskforce along with LGBTI Health and Human Services and Justice Working Groups.
"This Rainbow eQuality Guide was developed to assist mainstream health and community service agencies identify and adopt inclusive practices and become more responsive to the health and wellbeing needs of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) individuals and communities.
Inclusive practice is an essential part of the delivery of health and human services, not an add-on or afterthought."
