The Queer & Accessible project is working with LGBTIQ+ events, venues and safe spaces, offering practical assistance, financial support and advice as well as promoting accessible events to the LGBTIQ+ and disability communities.
Our Project Officers are both LGBTIQ+ people with disability and work closely with a lived experience panel to deliver the Q&A project.
During PrideFEST 2021 the Q&A Project worked with PrideWA and other groups, supporting their events to be more accessible through providing Auslan interpreters, quiet space, audio description and accessibility maps.
For LGBTIQ+ People with Disability
LGBTIQ+ people with disability are invited to steer the direction of the project through participating in consultations, completing an online survey or contacting us directly.
