Editor's Note:

While we welcome any consultation that happens in WA, it is important to acknowledge the poor track record of Gatekeeper run surveys that have not led to concrete evaluable outcomes for the LGBTIQ Community in WA.  In fact authentic peer consultation seems to be actively discouraged by the Controllers in Western Australia.

It is unclear from the documents sent to the community who is actually the over arching LGBTIQ Organization that is really in charge of running this consultation process. Certainly, one of the significant problems in WA is that there is no grassroots recognised independent democratic LGBTIQ body who advocates for the Health and Rights of LGBTI People in Western Australia.

To "critics" Yes, There are two groups in WA who "claim" to represent LGBTIQ People, however, in reality #PrideWA's constitution and function is as "Peak Party Planners" and the #RainbowRights group continues to be described as being a faction of the #AustralianLabourParty aka The Mt Lawley Branch with a heterosexual convenor and majority of members being heterosexual Members of the Mt Lawley ALP Branch.

The term run by LGBTI people for LGBTI People is perhaps disingenuous given that AIDS Industry logo are all over the promotional material sent out.

The fact that the AIDS Industry, is perceived by many to have an political and ideological management culture based on the failed #Catholic Living Centre model, a history of failing to be inclusive of Trans people, discriminating against all Religions and Spiritualities that do not align with the extreme Roman Catholic ideology that dominates the WA AIDS Industry, and only sending out selective invitations to events, is not a good sign.

We understand that Concerns have been raised by members of the HIV Community that that the report is already written and the consultation is designed to be just another #AIDS Industry style rubber stamp for agendas that unidentified Controllers have already set in concrete and to protect the failing status quo.

We are concerned that this report will be used by Gatekeepers to continue the cover up of LGBTIQ Domestic Violence / Stalking and white wash the WA AIDS Council's responsibility for the creation of the "Party for AIDS" Culture and continuing promotion of "data mining" online sex sites such as #Grindr, which created the ecological conditions that has led to Meth Addiction's destruction of the #LGBTIQ Community with crisis level rates of #HIV infection and explosion of serious mental health issues such as #ICE Psychosis.

We cautiously welcome this consultation and hope that the concerns being expressed by many around the water cooler will not turn out to be HAPAN mark 2!
