Draft LGBTQI+ Commitment

Project Background

The City of Hobart is a proud supporter of LGBTQI+ communities. However, we recognise that despite many social advances, such as marriage equality, LGBTQI+ people continue to experience harassment, discrimination and violence because of their sexuality and/or gender identity. These experiences can contribute to such things as psychological distress, homelessness and challenges with alcohol and other drugs that are disproportionately experienced by LGBTQI+ people.

During stakeholder engagement for the City’s Community Inclusion and Equity Framework, the community called for a dedicated LGBTQI+ Commitment to be developed. This commitment has been written in response to that feedback.

Through this commitment, the City celebrates the contributions that LGBTQI+ individuals and communities make to our municipality and demonstrate how we can support these communities to be proud and, visible and respond to the challenges they face.

The City is now seeking community feedback on the draft LGBTQI+ Commitment. Feedback gathered during this engagement period will be used to consider any changes or amendments to the draft commitments before presenting the final documents to Council in June 2021.
