The ANU LGBTIQ+ Alumni Network's mission is to foster community and build stronger connections between, ANU LGBTIQ+ alumni and students, staff, faculty, parents, and straight allies. The Network will achieve this mission in a variety of ways, including sponsoring social and networking events on campus and around the world, participating in community service and student mentoring programs, and serving as the voice of LGBTIQ+ alumni to the University.
Australian Capital Territory (ACT) Chief Minister Andrew Barr launched the Network at an event on 31 August 2018 - Wear it Purple Day. Chief Minster Barr is also the Network's inaugural patron, as an ANU alumnus and in recognition of his ongoing work in advancing LGBTIQ+ rights and inclusion in the ACT and Australia.
A calendar of events and opportunities is being developed online. You can stay connected with the Network and keep informed about its plans and activities by joining the Network's Facebook Group or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and asking to be added to the email list.
