“The new name and constitutional changes aim to reflect the contemporary organisation we have become and the work we are doing already for LGBTI people in WA.” Hampton said.

“The main catalyst for the change of name was the fact that our organisation has evolved and not only works to improve the health and wellbeing of the gay and lesbian people but also the bisexual, trans, intersex and other sexuality and gender diverse members of our community.”

The name was originally used for the organisations suicide prevention project which was funded by the state government’s One Life suicide prevention strategy. That project ended in October 2013, but the project’s name will now move over to being the organisation’s name.
