everyBODYwelcome! Inclusive eating disorder & body image supports

Research suggests that people who identify as gender non-binary or transgender are at two-to-four times greater risk of eating disorder symptoms or disordered eating behaviours than their cisgender counterparts. We also know that many people never seek support or receive treatment, and this unspoken illness can be very detrimental to the long-term physical and mental health of the individual, their families, and the community. 

Experiences of weight stigma, body shame or other negative emotions such as guilt cause trauma and contribute to the onset of eating disorders and increase disordered eating. Experiencing a health care provider as stigmatising or discriminating about either weight or gender identity makes seeking help incredibly difficult, can result in delayed or prevented access to appropriate treatment or may result in disengagement from much needed interventions and supports once accessed.

People with a lived experience of an eating disorder within the LGBTQIA+ community and their families and supports have shared insights with our organisations about their unique experiences of illness, access (and barriers) to appropriate supports and recovery. These stories help us to better understand how as organisations we can be helpful throughout treatment and recovery, remembering every single person’s experience is different and valuable. Consultation and collaboration within our community also enables us to build better clinical awareness, training, research, and opportunities for better access to individually tailored, inclusive care.

The everyBODYwelcome! collaboration will present a stall that provides free access to the key resources from each of the national organisations involved. We will work together to provide clear information to the community, such as where people can seek advice or health if needed for themselves or a loved one, and there will be representatives from the different organisations throughout the day if anyone would like to have a direct conversation. 

We will decorate one of the provided stalls with a collaborative everyBODYwelcome! Banner with additional banner representation from each of our national organisations. We will provide free handouts with key contact information and QR codes directly to each organisations websites, including directly links to the Butterfly National Helpline,  treatment services database, and family/carer support groups. Our stall volunteers will include people from the LGBTQIA+ community from each organisation. Our aim is to provide visibility representation, awareness, understanding and support for people with a lived or living experience of eating disorders within the community.

We hope to educate attendees on the importance of joining their respective unions and health funds. This is a valuable opportunity to educate others on the shared goals of progressing the fight for equality, and how this can continue in health and education.

Our Poz Lounge has two large umbrellas and comfortable seating for people living with HIV to take a break during Fair Day. This space has proven very popular amongst our community as it responds to the needs of people living with HIV by providing a safe space to rest and relax, where they were able to take their HIV medication in an understanding place, speak with peers and share their experiences with staff and other peers living with HIV.

We will also be promoting our first aid training courses and selling our St John Ambulance first aid kits. 

We found with our previous stall people had a number of questions around first aid and care for their families and friends and the stall prompted them to think about being prepared and update their skills in the event of an emergency. 

This was also a wonderful way to talk about our volunteers and the health services that St John Ambulance does provide to the public at a community level and engaging people about getting involved.

Sydney Bi+ Network

Sydney Bi+ Network is a volunteer-run grassroots organisation dedicated to improving the wellbeing of bi+ people through community building, education, and advocacy.

The stall will be used to showcase and sell our Stockups clips. The clips provide extra comfort to anyone who wears stockings or shape wear, it is attached to the top of the stockings/shape wear around the waist and then hooks over the bra band that goes around the body. This stops the stockings/shape wear slipping, rolling or falling down the waist area and keeps them high up where they should be under the bra band. The main purpose for attending is to sell our stock but also generate awareness of the brand and product as we are new to the market and know that there are many members of the LGBTQIA that would be interested in purchasing from us and think its a good way for us to display that we are a business in full support of LGBTQIA communities.


This is a great way to expand the audience for my brand. I will be producing brand new designs that will be available here first. I’ll have tees hanging from the stall bars and folded tees for perusing on the front table. I will have branded banners displayed.

Australia for UNHCR

Australia for UNHCR is a national partner of the UN Refugee Agency.  We raise awareness and funds to support people around the world fleeing conflict, persecution, and disaster.

At this year’s Fair Day, we would like to highlight the work that UNHCR does to protect vulnerable people, including members of the LGBTQIA+ community, who are forced to flee. They face a complex array of challenges and threats in their countries of origin, and asylum, including discrimination, prejudice, violence, and difficulty accessing assistance. UNHCR tries to protect all LGBTQIA+ refugees, asylum-seekers, internally displaced and stateless people and works with partners to provide inclusive services, protect their rights, and identify safe options.

We are planning to talk about our petition “Hope Away from Home” and ask our friends at Fair Day to add their signatures and support.  This petition calls on governments to abide by their moral and legal obligations to ensure that people forced to flee can seek asylum.

For refugees in many parts of the world this right is under threat. 

The petition will be presented to world leaders at the Global Refugee Forum in Switzerland in December. This is an opportunity to push for a brighter future where everyone’s rights are respected.

In regards to the decoration of our stall, our plan is to have images and stories displayed, relating to LGBTQIA+ refugee and displaced people’s stories. We will also decorate the stall in UNHCR colours, and make it engaging and eye-catching. We are planning a giveaway gift. The exact gift has yet to be decided upon, but the environment is our main consideration, and we will ensure the gift meets all the requirements set out in the Fair Day T&C’s (no single use plastics, no plastic packaging, no food or drink, no flyers etc. ).
