Celebrate #StrongSafeFabulous Relationships this Mardi Gras!
We invite you to celebrate #StrongSafeFabulous relationships in a new social media campaign to launch on the 1st of March.
Developed by Prosper (Project Australia) and Rainbow Families, the campaign addresses gendered violence in rainbow families across Australia and invites all members of the community to celebrate #SafeStrongFabulous LGBTQA+ relationships.
Simply take a photo of your #StrongSafeFabulous family, and share it on social media - don't forget to #StrongSafeFabulous
“Unfortunately domestic and family violence occurs at similar if not higher rates amongst sexuality and gender diverse communities than in the general community” says Prosper (Project Australia)’s Executive Director, Karen Craigie. “However, we know that we can change the picture and prevent violence. Whether you are a member of the LGBTQA+ community, an ally, friend, family member or supporter, we want everyone to get involved in celebrating #SafeStrongFabulous LGBTQA+ relationships.”
A suite of fabulous social media tiles and frames have been developed for sharing during the campaign and members of the community can participate by snapping a picture of their relationship and sharing with the tag #SafeStrongFabulous.
The initiative is part of the Rainbow Families Family Violence Prevention Program – a multi-year effort to engage LGBTQA+ families in the prevention of violence by supporting positive, equal and respectful LGBTQA+ relationships and communities, promoting pride in LGBTQA+ bodies, identities, families and relationships, and raising awareness and community capability to respond to violence.
