The next Commissioner for LGBTIQA+ Communities will provide advice to the Victorian Government and act as an important conduit between LGBTIQA+ communities and the government, facilitating positive discussions with Victorians on issues affecting LGBTIQA+ communities. 

Importantly, the next Commissioner will play a leading role in the implementation of the Pride in our future, strategy, the Victorian Government’s landmark 10-year plan for LGBTIQA+ equality, while driving work to improve access to justice and equitable, inclusive and accessible services across the state.

Applications are encouraged from individuals with diverse backgrounds who can demonstrate lived experience and who have extensive experience working with Victoria’s LGBTIQA+ communities. 

Applications close at 11.59pm on 8 April, 2024.
