Council is establishing an LGBTIQA+ Community Advisory Group to advise Council on the needs of people who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer and questioning, and asexual (LGBTIQA+) in Maribyrnong.

The Group will also support the development, implementation and review of the proposed LGBTIQA+ Strategy Action Plan 2021-2025 which will formally establish Council’s role in advocating for the equality and inclusion of the LGBTIQA+ people within the wider context of the Maribyrnong community.

You can share your thoughts on the LGBTIQA+ Strategy and Action Plan here.


We are looking for up to 10 community members and up to three representatives from community organisations, agencies or service providers working with LGBTIQA+ people, families and communities in Maribyrnong.

Applicants must have a connection with the City of Maribyrnong and a demonstrated knowledge of and commitment to gender and sexual orientation diversity, equality, and inclusion at a local, state, national or international level. They should also have an understanding of needs and risk factors impacting local LGBTIQA+ people, families and communities in Maribyrnong.

A broad representation of the community will be sought, based on ensuring a balance of gender, sexual orientation, age range, disability, cultural diversity, and faith backgrounds.

Membership is for the duration of the current Council term (until November 2024). A minimum of three meetings will be held throughout the year, either online or at the Footscray Town Hall.

For more information please refer to the LGBTIQA+ Community Advisory Group Terms of Reference under the Important Documents tab.
