New LGBTIQA+ Advisory Council launches on IDAHOBIT


LGBTIQA+ people will have a direct line of communication to the South Australian Government on the issues that matter most to them, with a new Minister’s Advisory Council launched on IDAHOBIT (the International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia, Intersexphobia and Transphobia).

Expressions of interest to join the Council are invited from all LGBTIQA+ people who reside in South Australia, with applications strongly encouraged from:

  • regional residents
  • Aboriginal and culturally diverse young people
  • young people with disability.

Council members will advise the Minister on how government policies and programs can better enable LGBTIQA+ people to feel safe and respected, regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity or sex characteristics.

Find out more about applying to join the council.

The Department of Human Services (DHS) is committed in its role as a steward of LGBTIQA+ inclusion within the South Australian public sector. Under its Diversity and Inclusion Strategy 2020–2023, DHS is undertaking an 18-month journey towards earning a Rainbow Tick accreditation, a quality framework that helps organisations demonstrate they are safe and inclusive service providers and employers for members of the LGBTIQA+ community. It will be the first government department anywhere in Australia to obtain Rainbow Tick accreditation, and the first Rainbow Tick accredited disability service provider in South Australia.
