Meeting Other Gender Diverse People
You can meet other trans and gender diverse people at Bundoora campus at Queer Chat and the Student Union Queer Department, or at Rainbow Eagles in Bendigo.

Changing Your Name and Gender in University records
You can change your title (including to Mx) and preferred name in your online enrolment details at any time.  There are also steps you can take to change your name or gender marker formally with the university.  Remember to consider the consequences of discrepancies as you change your name and gender (for example, it could be important that Centrelink and the University’s records match so that there are no issues with your payments).

Other support for gender diverse people:

  • If you need to talk to someone about medical transition or you’re looking for a trans-friendly doctor, Equinox is an entirely trans and gender-diverse health service in Fitzroy.
  • The Victorian gender diverse young people at YGender have put together some excellent Trans 101 resources and videos, and you can link in with them to meet other gender diverse young people.
  • Transgender Victoria provides advocacy and information for gender diverse people.
  • Multi-disciplinary clinics have been established in Preston with Your Community Health, and Ballarat with Ballarat Community Health, to support individuals looking to socially, medically or legally affirm their gender.
