Other things we do

Events

In 2018 we ran Australia’s first “Change Your ID Day” event, where members of the trans and gender diverse community could change their ID’s with Births, Deaths and Marriages and other organisations in a safe and inclusive environment. Our “Change Your ID Day” event moved online in 2020 due to COVID and was held on 15 May 2020.

Education

The LGBTIQ Legal Service can offer training to the legal assistance sector on all aspects of LGBTIQ Inclusive Practice and on the legal issues that impact upon the LGBTIQ community.

Advocacy

The LGBTIQ Legal Service is staffed by members of our diverse community who have expertise in many areas of law relevant to the LGBTIQ community. We work with LGBTIQ health and advocacy organisations and government bodies to deliver better outcomes for LGBTIQ Victorians.

Media and Awareness

The LGBTIQ Legal Service is constantly working to create a greater understanding of the legal issues that impact on our communities and can be contacted for media comment and consultation in these areas.

Partnerships

We are always looking for ways to increase our reach and impact, and to support other LGBTIQ community initiatives. We welcome contact from individuals and organisations who would like to partner with the LGBTIQ Legal Service.
