The Victorian Pride Centre LGBTIQ+ Community Reference Group (CRG) was established in 2018 and provides an opportunity for a broad range of intersecting LGBTIQ+ perspectives and experiences to be considered during the build, establishment and operation of the Pride Centre. 

We are looking for new members to join the existing group for a two-year term.   

Expressions of interest close 9am on Friday 11 November 2022.

  • Enjoy working collaboratively and developing mutual respect   
  • Are an active listener, willing to consider and empathise with wide-ranging points of view   
  • Have connections within LGBTIQ+ communities and/or organisations   
  • Have some understanding of current/contemporary issues faced by LGBTIQ+ communities and marginalised communities.  

We encourage you to express your interest to become a member. To ensure the CRG is representative of a wide range of voices across our communities, we particularly encourage expressions of interest from:

What’s involved?
