A song for sex rights

Everyone likes to have their voice heard, but not everyone is heard equally. Rainbow Rights is a self advocacy group for people with an intellectual disability and who happen to be LGBTIQ+. They’ve just recorded a song to let the world know that they have the same rights that everyone else does.

Guests include:
  • Cameron Bloomfield, Rainbow Rights
  • Dean Dadson, Self Advocacy Resource Unit (SARU)
  • Phil Heuzenroeder, Wild at Heart Community Arts
  • Jan Cole, Self Advocacy Resource Unit (SARU)
Rainbow Rights and Advocacy is a self advocacy group run by and for people with an intellectual disability who identify as LGBTIQ+. Rainbow Rights is a unique group as they are the first self advocacy group for people with an intellectual disability in the LGBTIQ+ community in Victoria, and possibly Australia. Rainbow Rights were formed several years ago out of an idea from Pride Vic, an organisation that works with people with disabilities from the LGBTIQ+ community and with support from the Self Advocacy Resource Unit (SARU).
