On supporting young LGBTIQA+ people

As a member of the University of Queensland Ally Action Committee and Ally Network, I work with a wonderful array of people to try to make our university and the wider community safer, more welcoming and inclusive for sex, gender and sexuality diverse people.

This year, we celebrated Wear it Purple Day – an annual day for reflecting on how we can support young LGBTIQA+ people – remotely with a ZOOM panel. The panel included students, advocates, role models, parents, and carers.

I’ve reflected on this event in a blog post, now hosted on the university’s Small Change website. The post includes four action items for people who want to be better allies for young LGBTIQA+ people. You can find it here.
