About Pride in Action

The Pride in Action Network is the University of Melbourne’s inaugural LGBTQIA+ ally network.

The Network has been established to work with network members and leadership to build and promote visibility of an inclusive and culture where diversity is affirmed and celebrated – from the inside out.

We are connecting staff and students who identify as LGBTIQA+, allies and supporters of the community, creating opportunities to share resources and foster an inclusive and supportive workplace and learning environment.

The Network is made up of members who are willing to stand up and out against homophobia, transphobia, and intersexism, and who want the University to be a place where identities are affirmed rather than simply accepted.
