September is Pride Month, and QUT is celebrating.

Get involved, educate and celebrate the communities and cultures of students, staff and the Brisbane community who identify as lesbian; gay; bisexual; transgender; intersex; queer or questioning; asexual, agender or aromantic; and those who identify as other diverse genders and sexualities (LGBTIQA+).

Attend an event, look out for content across the HiQ digital walls and claim a free rainbow lanyard at the QUT bookshops throughout the month of September.
