The Equality Project has launched an event which aims to create conversation and explore issues impacting the LGBTIQ community in Australia.
Held over two days at Melbourne Town Hall, Better Together 2018 will generate intersectional discussion around equality. The Equality Project states that the conference will be Indigenous and feminist in its approach and will aim to bring individuals from women's rights, Indigenous rights, disability, multicultural and faith groups together.
Before the conference there will be a number of workshops and training sessions designed to assist emerging leaders in developing skills and knowledge in leadership and a special event on the Saturday evening will see former number one tennis champion Billie Jean King speaking. Both the conference and training sessions will be interpreted in Auslan, as required. And be sure to RSVP for the Beer and BBQ kick-off event on Thursday, January 11.
Established to drive conversation and push for rights after last year's marriage equality vote, The Equality Project aims to connect groups and communities and establish a platform for voices in the LGBTIQ community.
