LGBTIQ+ COMMUNITY

The City of Vincent is proud to recognise and support our LGBTIQ+ community.

LGBTIQ+ is an umbrella term that encompasses many groups, including those who are Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex, Queer and other sex, sexuality and gender diverse people. The City recognises that these groups represent a diverse range of people and that intersectionality also affects the experiences and needs of many individuals in these groups. 

The City has a Community Development Officer who works with LGBTIQ+ groups and individuals to support their work within Vincent and to deliver LGBTIQ+ events and projects for both our staff and the community. Pride Fair Day at Hyde Park is one of the key events we are proud to support in partnership with Pride WA.

Along with a commitment to provide direct and indirect support to our LGBTQI+ community, the City operates using the overall vision for a vibrant 24 hour city whose ‘diverse population is supported in their innovative endeavours by a council that says YES!’ (City of Vincent Strategic Community Plan 2018‑2028).
