Standing for diversity in our community

Posted by Rotary LGBT Fellowship on 14 January 2019
Standing for diversity in our community

The Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and gender diverse, and intersex (LGBTI) community have, and still face many struggles today. As Rotarians we must celebrate the diversity of all aspects of our communities and come together for the second time ever to be part of the Midsumma Festival Melbourne Pride.

Late last year our Rotary family came together for an LGBTI+ awareness session on 1st December 2018. Our next step is to promote Rotary within the community as an open and inclusive organisation and to walk side by side with members and allies of the LGBTI community.

This year we will hold an information stall at the Midsumma Festival, promoting Rotary as an organisation that is inclusive and open to all members of the community. Midsumma Festival serves as a celebration of Pride and many organisations hold stalls to promote themselves to the broader community, in order to raise awareness for inclusion. Being involved says you are an ally to the LGBTI community and shows Rotary as a diverse and inclusive organisation.
