We’re proud to support our students and staff who identify as lesbian; gay; bisexual; transgender; intersex; queer or questioning; asexual, agender or aromantic; and those with other diverse genders and sexualities (LGBTIQA+).
Explore the range of services, facilities and groups available to both QUT students and staff.
We're celebrating Queer Week from 2-6 March. Look out for content across the university at The Cube, Sphere and on the HiQ digital walls, celebrate the LGBTIQA+ communities and learn something new as well.
Come along to our Research Forum: Diverse Genders, Sexualities and Sex Characteristics, which showcases work by current QUT staff and HDR students. Presentations from previous Research Forums can be found on the QUT Media Warehouse.
QUT's Ally network provides support, safe zones, services, events, information and resources to LGBTIQA+ students on our campuses.
Allies are trained to understand sexuality and gender issues, and are committed to promoting a safe, inclusive and diverse university.
Allies are not identified as any particular sexuality or gender identity.

The group raises awareness and offers support for queer students, who are often marginalised in universities.
QUT Student Guild
The QUT Guild has a strong history of representing diversity on campus and contributing to a safe, fair and equitable experience for all students.
The guild provides services for gender and sexuality issues, increases awareness of sex education amongst the student body, and provides students with a space to discuss gender-equality issues.
You can contact the gender and sexuality representative at email@example.com.
QUT Pride Staff Network
The QUT Pride Staff Network (QPSN) connects staff with diverse genders, sexualities and identities.
The network offers a forum for staff to celebrate diversity, network, collaborate, share experiences and to represent their communities in university business and policy making.
Membership is open to staff who identify as LGBTIQA+ or other diverse genders, sexualities and identities.
QUT Action Plan
All students and staff should experience a sense of belonging which arises from an inclusive learning and working environment which respects diversity.
Our LGBTIQA+ Action Plan outlines current and proposed support for students and staff, as well as awareness-raising activities to create an inclusive campus culture.
