Centre for LGBTQ+ Inclusion in Education

Committed to challenging all forms of prejudice, discrimination and marginalisation towards individuals and collectives in schools and colleges who identify as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, Queer/ Questioning and others who have gender identities or sexual orientations that differ from the heterosexual and cisgender majority.

Through our work we will provide evidence-based recommendations to support the development of LGBTQ inclusion in education.

Our research enables us to better understand the experiences of LGBTQ+ people in educational institutions, including the experiences of children, young people and staff. Through our research we provide voice and agency to those who have been marginalised.

Through research, professional learning, and the production of education focused resources we seek to transform the cultures of educational institutions so that individuals who identify as LGBTQ+ can experience a sense of belonging through a positive affirmation of difference.
