LGBT / LGBTI / LGBTI+ / LGBTIQ / LGBTIQ* is a well-known collective term for individuals who identify as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans/Transgender, Intersex or Queer/Questioning. 

The University of Adelaide has a commitment to creating a safe and supportive environment for staff and students who identify as LGBTIQ* and holds events and celebrations such as International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia & Transphobia (IDAHOBIT). We also strongly promote participation in the ALLY Network.

Even if you're aware of and comfortable with your own sexuality, it can be helpful to understand of some of the terminology around sexuality. More information can be found on our Health and Relationships page.  Additionally, Reach Out  (external link)has some great information, and so does SHINE SA (external link).

If you are unsure, upset, isolated or anxious it might help to talk to a student counsellor or support service (external link). Staff can access the Employee Assistance Program (EAP) for support.
