About the committee

The Victorian Coalition Government has established a Ministerial Advisory Committee to be able to provide advice on the delivery of election commitments related to the health of gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and intersex (GLBTI) Victorians and appropriate clinical health responses for the community.

The Ministerial Advisory Committee will be able to provide advice to the Minister for Health and Ageing, David Davis, and the Minister for Mental Health and Community Services, Mary Wooldridge, on health responses for the GLBTI community.

Committee members are drawn from relevant Victorian GLBTI communities and from clinical professionals with experience in working to improve the health of GLBTI people.

The Age has the announcement.

About the author

Veteran gay writer and speaker, Doug was one of the founders of the UKs pioneering GLBTI newspaper Gay News (1972) , and of the second, Gay Week, and is a former Features Editor of Him International. He presented news and current affairs on JOY 94.9 FM Melbourne for more than ten years. "Doug is revered, feared and reviled in equal quantities, at times dividing people with his journalistic wrath. Yet there is no doubt this grandpa-esque bear keeps everyone abreast of anything and everything LGBT across the globe." (Daniel Witthaus, "Beyond Priscilla", Clouds of Magellan, Melbourne, 2014)
