Rainbow Cultures is a new online directory for LGBTQIA+ multicultural community groups and services in NSW. It was developed in collaboration between ACON and community members from ANTRA (Australia and New Zealand Tongzhi Rainbow Alliance) and ConversAsians/SocialisAsians, and expanded on Advance Diversity Service’s existing multicultural LGBTQ support directory.
For multicultural LGBTQ+ communities, and especially those from migrant backgrounds who are new to Australia, it’s important that they are able to connect with groups and services that understand the intersections of their cultural, linguistic, sexuality and gender diversity, and empower them to have a strong sense of belonging and community connectedness. We’re hoping an online directory like Rainbow Cultures is one of the many steps in providing this for our multicultural LGBTQ+ communities. Rainbow Cultures is also an ongoing project where the directory will be constantly updated alongside community volunteers.
We’d like to extend the invite to you all to come along to our launch event which is happening next Thursday 18 February, 5:30pm – 6:30pm.
If you have any questions or feedback, please feel free to get in touch at [email protected].
