Better Together Conference

Better Together is our national conference. In order to facilitate a conversation about LGBTIQ+ rights in Australia we need to have a platform to share our ideas and experiences and ask the hard questions about how we can move forward and tackle what's important.

Better Together is a space for our voices to be heard. 

The conference aims to explore current issues facing the LGBTIQ+ movement, bringing together voices from indigenous communities, people with a disability, the Deaf community, as well as multicultural and multi-faith communities.

Our goal is to create a truly intersectional discussion about achieving meaningful social change to create a fairer, more equal and more just Australia. 

Our inaugural conference, Better Together 2018, was held at the Melbourne Town Hall from 13-14 January 2018. It was attended by over 650 people from every state as well as a number of delegates from the US, UK and the Philippines.

The Equality Project also runs training sessions through the Leadership Training Academy, #LTA2018, to help develop the capacity and skills of emerging leaders in the Australian LGBTIQ+ community. Find out more about #LTA2018 here.
