At the University of Sydney, ‘LGBTIQ’ is used as an inclusive umbrella term that recognises the diversity and experiences of sexualities, sex characteristics and genders. We acknowledge that this terminology is a source of ongoing community debate and may not reflect the preferred identification of individuals.
