Supporting our LGBTQIA+ community

Our Bayside 2050 Vision foresees a community where every member is celebrated, included and feel they belong in our municipality.

We are committed to diversity and nurturing inclusivity, including supporting our LGBTQIA+ community.

We are working hard to nurture a community where participation in community life is possible and encouraged regardless of age, ability, cultural or economic circumstance.

We are now proudly flying the rainbow flag at our Corporate Centre and taking part in the Melbourne Pride march for the first time this year.

Australian, Indigenous, Torres Strait Islander and rainbow flags flying above Bayside City Council's corporate centre.

These are visible symbols of our commitment to an inclusive Bayside and these steps help members of our LGBTIQIA+ community feel seen and heard.

Midsumma is Australia's premier queer arts and cultural organisation, bringing together a diverse mix of LGBTQIA+ artists, performers, communities and audiences.

As part of our commitment to diversity and inclusion we provide the option for staff to include pronouns in corporate email signatures. Indicating your preferred pronoun is a way to show support for trans, gender diverse and non-binary colleagues and consumers.

It is another step toward making our practices and workplaces more inclusive.
