This project builds on the success of a UK-based project, and reviews local government strategies and policies across Greater Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, regarding their strategies and activities for accommodating LGBTIQ+ individuals, families and communities. It shows inner-city councils are more proactive in inclusive initiatives, and improvements are needed in increasing staff training and awareness of LGBTIQ+ issues. The findings informed the development of a framework that can assist local councils to improve the inclusivity of local areas and public spaces.
