Broome, WA: Bonson, D.

Voices from the Black Rainbow is a book that highlights the importance of including the voices of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander, lesbian gay bisexual queer transexual intersexual (LGBQTI) community including transgender people who identify as sistergirls and brotherboys, in health, wellbeing and suicide prevention strategies.

It covers the absence of these community voices from both Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander suicide prevention strategies and activities, and LGBQTI suicide prevention strategies and activities; as well as the challenges of providing these voices in a suicide prevention strategy.

Research for the book included collecting example voices of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander LGBQTI community via an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander methodology called Yarning Circles.
