Red Thread

Red Thread acknowledges the continuing custodianship of land by Australia’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. We pay respects to elders past, present and emerging and the cultural and spiritual practices of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

Yesterday was the first day of National Reconciliation Week. This year's theme is 'In This Together'. The dates remain the same each year; 27 May to 3 June. These dates commemorate two significant milestones in the reconciliation journey— the successful 1967 referendum, and the High Court Mabo decision respectively. It is a time for all Australians to learn about our shared histories, cultures, and achievements, and to explore how each of us can contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia.

Red Thread

Today is the launch of Australia's first LGBTIQ+ Domestic Violence Awareness Day, aiming to raise awareness of Domestic Violence (DV) in LGBTIQ+ communities, remember LGBTIQ+ victims of DV who have lost their lives, recognise LGBTIQ+ survivors, and acknowledge the struggles of those LGBTIQ+ people who may currently be in an abusive relationship. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Recent studies show that up to 62% of LGBTIQ+ people have experienced domestic violence within their relationships, yet awareness of the issue and reporting rates are still incredibly low with only 6% being reported to police.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
