An immediate $6.5 million investment will go towards making organisations safer and more inclusive for LGBTIQ+ Victorians, supporting the health and wellbeing of people with an intersex variation and continuing peer support for trans and gender diverse Victorians. It also includes campaigns to tackle discrimination, making sure those who have been long excluded from services and opportunities in the community because of who they are, feel included.
The strategy was shaped by more than 1,600 contributions from LGBTIQ+ people, organisations and allies.
Victoria has made great progress towards equality in recent years, removing discrimination from legislation, providing strong support for LGBTIQ+ organisations and events and delivering the Victorian Pride Centre, but there is always more to do.
