We have a vibrant LGBTIQA+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, pansexual, transgender, non-binary, intersex, queer, questioning and asexual) community, and we actively celebrate and support our queer students. At La Trobe, we want you to feel safe, valued and supported. We have dedicated queer counsellors, queer social support groups at Bundoora (Queer Chat and LTSU Queer Collective) and Bendigo (Rainbow Eagles), and many other services and supports for our LGBTIQA+ students.
