LGBTIQ Forum Day
The LGBTIQ Forum Day provides an opportunity for Monash students and staff to come together and discuss challenges faced by the LGBTIQ community, learn about current research in the LGBTIQ space, develop their skills as allies, and make new connections.
Friday 1 December, 2017
Level 8, H Building
The program will be released Friday 17 November.
The International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia (IDAHOBIT) was created in 2004 to highlight the violence and discrimination experienced by the LGBTIQ community internationally. The date, 17 May, was specifically chosen to commemorate the World Health Organization's decision in 1990 to declassify homosexuality as a mental disorder.
At Monash University we are committed to the development of an inclusive, safe, and respectful culture both on campus and in the broader community. In 2017 we celebrated IDAHOBIT with a week of events and activities (15 - 18 May) in partnership with the Monash Student Association, MONSU Caulfield, MONSU Peninsula, the Monash Postgraduate Association, the Monash Parkville Student Union and the Parkville Postgraduate Association, across the Caulfield, Clayton, Parkville and Peninsula campuses.
