This project will help us think about what it means to desire.
Desire is a strong feeling of wanting something or someone.
Thinking about desire and intimacy get us to think about labelled people’s desire to have intimate relationships.
This project will help us think about how some intimate relationships are supported or are not supported.
Labelled people want society and their families to accept their desire and right to love.
This project will help us find ways to get this acceptance.
Loving relationships are important because they can help us create safe support networks.
Loving relationships also help us stay connected to each other.
Close, loving relations protect us from being treated unfairly.
They also protect us against being used, being alone and violence.
But sometimes intimate relationships can also include violence, abuse and being treated unfairly.
