Group of stylised people representing the diversity of the LGBTIQ+ community

Representation and participation

In our consultations, participants noted the importance of LGBTIQA+ people taking part at all levels of decision making. This includes within government, the community and private sectors, and in delivering programs and supports intended for them. 

‘We need everyday LGBTIQA+ people represented in a positive way as role models.’
Workshop participant, rural and regional consultation

A key part of LGBTIQA+ representation is the broad principle of ‘nothing about us, without us’, a term with its origins in disability activism. This calls for including and supporting the diversity of LGBTIQA+ people in the design, delivery and review of government policies, services and programs.
