International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia, Interphobia & Transphobia (IDAHOBIT) celebrates LGBTIQ people globally and raises awareness for the work still needed to combat discrimination.

We recognised the day by celebrating people with disability, carers, and staff in the Rainbow communities, raising awareness and working towards ending discrimination.

Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTIQ) people face many challenges in their everyday life and IDAHOBIT was the perfect opportunity to celebrate diversity and to raise awareness of their human rights.

At Carers Queensland we are committed to creating an organisation where everyone feels safe. Since 2018, under the Rainbow Tick framework, we’ve been leading the way with inclusive work practices.

Throughout our different offices, staff went rainbow to show our support for the LGBTIQ community and make a stand against discrimination.

This year the theme of unity brought us together.

Carers Queensland is the only organisation in Queensland to hold Rainbow Tick Accreditation.

The Rainbow Tick framework is designed to support organisations to improve the quality of services they provide to lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and gender diverse, intersex, and queer clients and employees.

At Carers Queensland, staff are trained in providing culturally safe services and support to LGBTIQ people.
