Recognising our LGBTIQA+ Heritage
Monday 06 February 2023
We want to do more to recognise places, buildings and objects that are historically important to our LGBTIQA+ communities.
As part of our LGBTIQ+ Strategy 2021-2024, we are working to identify and document locations that are historically important to LGBTIQA+ communities, to ensure they will be celebrated and understood into the future.
We have a compiled list of places, buildings and objects that may have special association with LGBTIQA+ communities.
This work is informed by our LGBTIQ+ Strategy 2021-2024, State Government research, our partnership with Queer-ways Melbourne and community outreach delivered by our Council officers.
How do I help?
Share your personal insights and memories about places, buildings or objects that are special to LGBTIQA+ communities so we can better understand, protect and celebrate Yarra’s LGBTIQA+ heritage.
Your feedback will help us in updating the Thematic History of Yarra and may inform statements of significance used in our heritage listing.
Together we can better understand and celebrate Yarra’s LGBTIQA+ heritage.
This consultation closes at 9am on Monday 27 February so act fast.
