Pride Week is an annual celebration of the contributions of our LGBTIQA+ community. In 2022, Pride Week is happening from 22-26 August.
A message from Dene Cicci, Executive Director, Students at RMIT University.
RMIT Pride Week (22-26 August 2022) is about raising awareness of issues and barriers to inclusion, creating spaces of belonging and sharing stories that connect us.
It’s brought together by and for our students, staff and alumni and celebrates our commitment to the inclusion of our LGBTIQA+ community.
At RMIT, we also use the terminology ‘people of diverse genders, sexes, and sexualities’ (DGSS) to reflect the diversity of our community beyond the LGBTIQA+ label.
This year at RMIT Pride Week, a combination of online and in-real-life events will allow everyone to take part.
Keep checking back here for more as we get closer to festivities.
