    Greater Shepparton LGBTI+ Community Alliance

    Thank you for joining us recently on Thu 17 May for IDAHOBIT … and Sat 23 June for Pride Cup – our next big event is OUTintheOPEN Festival 1 – 4 November 2018!


    During June 2017 the Equality Roadshow visited Shepparton, and ran a community inclusion outcomes workshop with the LGBTI+ and mainstream community services. A number of us agreed to keep meeting after that session to plan and activate the list of possibilities for inclusion as documented on that day.

    In July 2017 a LGBTI+ inclusion planning meeting occurred with LGBTI+ community groups, advocates, and local services committed to creating an LGBTI+ inclusive practice network for Greater Shepparton. A working group was established to get things moving (and you were welcome/encouraged to join, participate in, develop and promote this exciting network).

    The working group then conducted a survey for those wishing to contribute to the shaping of the network. Our 1st meeting to solidify the network focus, and develop terms of reference and/or protocols for meeting outcomes and any results we had from the survey took place in August 2017. One outcome of this meeting was the naming of the new network: Greater Shepparton LGBTI+ Community Alliance.

    The 2nd meeting occurred in September 2017, a 3rd meeting in November 2017, a 4th meeting in February 2018, a 5th meeting in April 2018, a 6th meeting in May 2018, and so on. Many issues have been discussed to date including trans & gender diverse pathways/services, a local Pride Cup football game for June 2018 and a marketing/promotion plan for the Alliance (among many other issues/standing items), and are in motion.
