LGBTIQ+ students

RMIT is proud to celebrate and support our students who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer/questioning or asexual/agender (LGBTIQ+).

To reflect the diversity of our community beyond the ‘LGBTIQ+’ label, RMIT also uses the terminology people of ‘diverse genders, sexes, and sexualities’ (DGSS).

Looking for DGSS information for staff? Go to the RMIT Staff DGSS page (login required).
