Rainbow flag to fly for IDAHOBIT Day

The rainbow flag will be raised at USQ to mark International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia, Intersexism and Transphobia (IDAHOBIT).
16 May 2018

The rainbow flag will be raised at University of Southern Queensland (USQ) to mark International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia, Intersexism and Transphobia (IDAHOBIT) tomorrow (May 17).

The flag will fly proudly at all three USQ campuses (Toowoomba, Ipswich and Springfield) to show the University’s support of the LGBTIQ community and the USQ Ally Network.

The USQ Ally Network aims to provide a safe-zone and a visible support network for students and employees who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex and queer or questioning. 

The Network will be running a number of initiatives for IDAHOBIT Day which aim to promote solidarity and equality at USQ whilst raising awareness of LGBITQ issues more broadly. The USQ Pride Club, USQ Accessibility Network and the National Tertiary Education Union will be assisting the Ally Network to promote the day. 

Find our more information at USQ’s Ally Network.
