Diverse Bodies, Genders, and Sexualities


The Psychology of Diverse Bodies, Genders and Sexualities Interest Group website aims to provide information regarding lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex psychology in Australia. Psychology of Diverse Bodies, Genders and Sexualities Interest Group recognises the sovereignty of the many Indigenous nations upon whose land we live in Australia. Psychology of Diverse Bodies, Genders and Sexualities Interest Group also acknowledges the diversity of bodies, sexual orientations and gender identifications that are broadly represented by the field of psychology, and aims to develop representative and respectful engagements with a broad range of communities. Psychology of Diverse Bodies, Genders and Sexualities Interest Group is involved in advocacy work, in producing and supporting research in the diverse field of LGBTI psychology, and in supporting practitioners in providing services to members of LGBTI communities.


The APS Public Interest team take a proactive approach to issues where psychology can make a contribution to public debate and policy in the interests of community wellbeing and social justice. They regularly develop materials (position statements, submissions, tip sheets, media releases etc.) in a range of areas to assist the APS to speak authoritatively on matters of public concern, in ways that can be readily understood by decision-makers, the media, and the general public.
