#Who are we?

The UTS Queer Collective is an autonomous collective for and by lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, non-binary intersex, asexual, or questioning students.

We are a safe space for any queer or questioning student and we prioritise privacy and autonomy for the safety of all our members. We provide an autonomous queer space, accessible by card only by queer and questioning UTS students, and a private Facebook page and new discord server. It’s a great place to make friends, advocate for queer issues and get started in queer activism.

It's a safe space to forge friendships and build community, and we host regular events, as well as weekly meetings, as well as advocating for the welfare of queer students.

#What we do?

We run a card-access only queer space and autonomous events, which means we work hard to ensure that all members are safe at university. We’ll work hard to make sure our online spaces are autonomous too, so members won’t be outed by attending or checking out our events.

We hold both online and in-person weekly meetings during semester time where we update the collective on queer news, and rallies, and members can have a say in upcoming social events and how the collective runs. During 2021 we are looking to revitalise strengthen the bonds in the queer community after a year of online engagement and are looking to new ways for people to engage with the collective. We are aiming to help people in the collective build up their leadership skills and learn more about being involved with collectives and student activism by sharing our knowledge and facilitating new members helping organise events. We hope to continue making the collective an accessible, welcoming space and have a number of events planned for the year including book clubs and crafternoons, educational workshops, our annual ‘You can’t ask that panel’ and contingents to attend rallies and protests.


If you have any queries, or for more information about the collective, feel free to reach out to the 2021 Queer officers.
