For those only attending the AGM arrival starts from 5:00pm for a 6:00pm start.

Join us for an interactive forum on the human right of people with disability to express their sexuality and have a family, followed by food, drinks & our AGM!

Our forum will cover topics related to Section 216 of the Qld. Criminal Code and its impact on the rights of people with disability to develop intimate relationships, rights to bodily integrity, sexual expression and raise family. Discussions with key QAI advocates about this outdated law, the intersection of the new Queensland Human Rights Act and how it may address these issues.

We want to hear from our community and members on the issues you care most about and what you would like to see more of from us at QAI.

After the forum we would love for you to stay for some networking, nibbles and drinks before we start our AGM.

We have some amazing speakers lined up for our AGM. We will hear from a couple, both with intellectual impairments, who QAI advocated for to help them keep their imminent baby and helped them gain proper supports through the NDIS, enabling them to live independently as a family. Bub is now newborn and living happily with Mum and Dad!
We also have another NDIS client who may be speaking – TBC.

After AGM business concludes we will have dinner and drinks available.
