What does it mean to belong? How are gender, sexuality, ethnicity and citizenship in Australia understood and experienced? What are the challenges around multiculturalism and inclusion, and what does it mean to be ‘Australian’ today? This project aims to explore these questions from the standpoint of LGBTQA+ Sydney-based young people from Lebanese, Indian and Anglo backgrounds.
The study is a PhD research project conducted by Sujith Kumar, a PhD candidate based at the Centre for Social Research in Health, a specialist research centre at UNSW Sydney. This project is supervised by Emeritus Professor Peter Aggleton, Associate Professor Joanne Bryant and Dr. Nicholas Apoifis, who are experts on young people, sexual health and identity.
Help us learn about belonging in Sydney by participating in confidential interviews and receive $25 for each interview. Ultimately, findings from the study may prompt reflection from within and beyond LGBTQA+ communities and may influence culturally appropriate health, education, community support and policy perspectives.
