Start the conversation

The City of Perth has invited feedback from citizens concerning its Draft LGBTQIA+ Plan aimed at improving the experience and wellbeing of the LGBTQIA+ community in the city.

Chief Executive Officer of the City of Perth, Michelle Reynolds said the three-year Draft Plan focused on the City’s role as a service provider, partner and facilitator in increasing the visibility, social inclusion and health and wellbeing of the LGBTQIA+ community.

“The Plan is a starting point on the City’s journey to support and advocate for the community,” Ms Reynolds said.

“Sharing the Draft LGBTQIA+ Plan and seeking feedback from the public is a significant milestone.”

She said once the final Plan was endorsed by the Council meeting in October, “we look forward to continuing to share the progress made with, and for, the community over the next three years”.

Ms Reynolds said the Council had taken part in more than 500 consultations to better understand and improve the safety, visibility, social inclusion, health and wellbeing of the LGBTQIA+ community in Perth.

“Through the development and consultation of this ambitious LGBTQIA+ Plan, we have heard hundreds of voices and many stories,” Ms Reynolds said.

“Thank you to those in the community and within the City of Perth who took the time to participate in the consultation,” she said.

“We have heard you and the Plan reflects your feedback and aspirations for Perth.”

Ms Reynolds said the City of Perth’s LGBTQIA+ Advisory Group was the first of its kind in Western Australian Local Government and had been exponential in providing views and input into the development of the plan.
