The event ran from 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm and included the framing of LGBTIQ families in the Australian community and the discussion of the experiences of LGBTIQ people when navigating the family law sector and post-separation space. It also examined the legal issues experienced by LGBTIQ people when accessing legal assistance both in family law and when separating. The event concluded with an audience Q&A.
