LGBTIQA+ community

The City of Stonnington is committed to promoting opportunities for engagement, support, advocacy and partnerships for our LGBTIQA+ community.

The City of Stonnington released its inaugural LGBTIQA+ Action Plan in May 2023. The plan is explicitly linked to the Stonnington Health and Wellbeing Plan 2021-25 which was released in late 2021.

LGBTIQA+ Action Plan 2023-26

The LGBTIQA+ Action Plan 2023-26 identifies Council's focus over the next three years for improving social and economic inclusion, and reducing barriers to participation for the LGBTIQA+ community in our city.

The Action Plan, and related activities, strive to raise the profile of the LGBTIQA+ community and promote opportunities for community engagement, support and advocacy to achieve true inclusion.
