All you need is: Love Unlimited
On Saturday 3 March, Western Sydney University staff, students and alumni – including Senior Deputy Vice-Chancellor Professor Scott Holmes - will march in the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras parade. This will be the fourth year the University has marched at Mardi Gras and the theme of this year's float is 'Love Unlimited'.
Now in its 40th year, the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras is a celebration and expression of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex and queer (LGBTIQ) identity.
Vice-Chancellor Professor Barney Glover says the University is strongly committed to the equality of its LGBTIQ students and staff.
“As a vibrant and diverse intellectual community, Western Sydney University is proud to promote a culture that is inclusive of sexual and gender diversity.
“Last year I was honoured to march with the University’s float and considered this an important way to show our united support of LGBTIQ students, staff and alumni.” says Professor Glover.
More than 70 students, staff and alumni of Western Sydney University will participate in the parade this year. Many are part of the University’s Ally Network, a staff and student group committed to creating an inclusive and respectful culture for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex and queer community members.
To find out more about the Ally Network and the Queer Collective visit the Ally website or the Queer Collective Facebook page (opens in a new window). Western Sydney University also offers additional support for LGBTIQ staff and students.
