The University’s Pride Network supports the inclusion of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex and queer (LGBTIQ) members of our community.
The Ally Network has been renamed the Pride Network to provide more meaning and openness for our LGBTIQ communities, and encourage more members and supporters of the work that we do.
The network is made up of staff and students who support and advocate on behalf of everyone who identifies as LGBTIQ. The group meets regularly to discuss any LGBTIQ issues and concerns on campus, and provides a channel to raise these with University leadership. The aim is for all members of our community to feel supported and free to contribute their best, regardless of gender or sexual orientation.
The role of a Pride Network member is to be aware of the challenges faced by LGBTIQ people and to make a difference in whatever way they feel comfortable.
If you’re seeking information or someone to talk to about gender and sexual diversity, you can talk to a Pride Network contact.
You don't have to identify as LGBTIQ to talk to someone.
Anyone is welcome to participate and stand together as a member of the network. Your role is to be a point of support for LGBTIQ students and staff, to be aware of the challenges and to make a difference in whatever way you feel comfortable.
This can include being a point of contact or standing against inequality or exclusion.
