It’s all about Multicultural LGBTIQ

What has happened in the last 10 years for multicultural and/or multifaith LGBTIQ and their communities? Has there been progress toward equality?

President's Welcome

Welcome to the Australian GLBTIQ Multicultural Council’s National Conference 2018 – with an inspirational line up of national and international Keynotes and an exciting array of workshops.

To inspire and educate our future generations, we have incorporated a Youth Day Conference, and we invite all schools and students to participate. It is important to focus and build on our future , so that they have the skills, knowledge and confidence to forge lasting equality in Australia and internationally.

For the weekend, we will hold the National Conference, with the goal of this conference is to reflect on the past 10 years (and more) about multicultural and multifaith (MCMF) issues and questions in Australia. How far have we come to build equality and understanding within our LGBTI communities and also within our MCMF communities? What gaps have we missed and how can we address these?

We want to expand your understanding and build your connections with local, national and international groups and services. You will have the opportunity to chat with speakers, researchers and policy makers. These kinds of meetings can be rare so use this chance to shake hands and get to know each other.

Melbourne was voted the world’s most livable city for the 7th time in a row. The location venue is central and you will be able to experience the great food, coffee and festivities that Melbourne is known for. At United We Feast, celebrate with your peers and friends over international recipes and laughter.

We are very excited to see you at the National Conference. Your presence will make it a great event.

Dr Judy Tang
President and Conference Chair
