What an awesome project welcoming me to my new role @portpirieregionalcouncil 🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈 Well done to my new colleague Glen Christie, Director for Arts and Tourism, for championing this project in Port Pirie. 🌈
🌈 “This year @anz_au is bringing a little bit of Mardi Gras and all that it represents to different parts of Australia. Seven sculptures have been installed across the country, transforming Oxford St signs into beautiful works of art. These are designed to be signposts of an equal future and inclusivity for the LGBTIQ+ community. A Giant ‘Signs of Love’ signpost has also been installed at Bondi Beach pointing to the other 122 Oxford Streets around the country.
Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras CEO, Terese Casu said: “ANZ has been a long-time supporter of Mardi Gras and we’re thrilled that they share our vision of LGBTIQ+ inclusion across the country. We hope the installations serve as a reminder that individuality is worth celebrating and that they prompt conversation around LGBTIQ+ inclusion in a range of different communities.” 🌈
Research shows that almost half a million LGBTIQ+ community members (1 in every 4) in Australia are still not comfortable being their true selves and discussing their sexuality and gender identity with their loved ones or friends. *84% of LGBTIQ+ community members believe there are still parts of Australia where it is unsafe to be LGBTIQ+. And 68% of non- LGBTIQ+ think so too.
*68% of Aussies support efforts to improve LGBTIQ+ equality.
*LGBTIQ+ community members are still twice as likely to experience some form of harassment, discrimination or open prejudice because of their sexual orientation.
*52% of LGBTIQ+ community members would not open up about their sexuality with their manager at work
