The first ever Victorian LGBTIQ+ Strategy will guide the Victorian Government’s efforts to achieve equality for LGBTIQ+ communities over the next decade.

Following consultation with more than 800 people and organisations across Victoria about the issues that need to be addressed, we have proposed a vision for LGBTIQ+ equality in Victoria.

We have also identified four high priority areas for change in systems, policies and services. These are known as ‘directions’.

The LGBTIQ+ Strategy Directions Paper provides a summary of the main themes raised during consultations, and details the vision and directions. It is available on this page.

Now, we are seeking further feedback on whether this vision and the directions adequately capture your vision for LGBTIQ+ equality in Victoria, and ideas for improving the lives of LGBTIQ+ Victorians.

How to participate

You can have your say by completing the short survey on this page by midnight on Wednesday 17 February 2021.

Next steps

Your feedback will inform the LGBTIQ+ Strategy, including the actions the Victorian Government will commit to take to achieve equality for LGBTIQ+ communities over the coming decade.

All Government departments and agencies have begun considering what actions they will commit to in the LGBTIQ+ Strategy. Your views will help to inform these decisions. The LGBTIQ+ Taskforce, which advises the Victorian Government on LGBTIQ+ issues, will also continue to provide input.

The LGBTIQ+ Strategy will be released in the second half of 2021.
