The ANU LGBTQIA+ Alumni Network mission is to foster community among, and build stronger connections between, ANU LGBTQIA+ alumni and students, staff, faculty, parents, and straight allies through an intersectional lens.
This will be achieved through social and networking events, thought leadership discussions, representation and advocacy of our community and building strong networks with other LGBTQIA+ organisations.
The ANU LGBTQIA+ Alumni Network was launched by Chief Minister Andrew Barr on 31 August 2018, as part of a Wear it Purple Day event.
