It's a safe space to forge friendships and build community. We host regular events and weekly meetings, as well as advocating for the welfare of queer students. We have an autonomous space (meaning only accessible to queer identifying or questioning students) as well as a private Facebook group which aim to ensure the autonomy, anonymity and security of all members.
Queer Officers: Beth Williams and Rhiannon Soliman
#Who are we?
The Queer Collective is a place for any UTS students, staff, and alumni who identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, non-binary, or who are questioning their sexuality or gender identity.
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?
In 2019 we want to continue to foster a sense of queer community, running events such as our 'You can't ask that' panel discussion, musical nights and bar tab events, a drag performance night and queer careers fair.
This year we're also aiming to put more of a focus on accessible and daytime events such as collective picnics, movie viewings, and many more! We’re also looking forward to celebrating pride week, as well as hopefully the first queer collective pride ball! Additionally, we will continue providing support and resources regarding queer issues such as sexual health, youth homelessness, and coming out, and carry out campaigns, such as our gender neutral bathroom campaign, or protests advocating for the welfare and rights of queer students.
