What you need to know

LGBTIQA+

Moonee Valley City Council is committed to assuring respect and support for our LGBTIQA+ community.

We extend our love to those who are questioning, exploring, or even struggling with gender identity, sexual orientation, and/or attractions. We are here to offer you a safe and affirming space to be yourself.  We feel your strength and your resilience, and we extend our compassion.

Above all, we are here to let you know that you are not alone.

We stand in solidarity with everyone who identifies as  lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, gender-diverse, intersex, non-binary & queer (LGBT+) community. LGBTIQA+ communities are included as a target population in MV2040. This means that Council will actively work towards including LGBTIQA+ communities across all its work through meaningful engagement and activities that promote inclusion and acceptance.
