2004 Conference

In Australia there are a number of culturally based Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex and Queer (GLBTIQ) communities. The groups have traditionally been formed to provide social support for Australians from Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) backgrounds that identify as GLBTIQ. In 2003, the groups came together in a community building / strengthening effort to promote greater understanding in a truly multicultural, diverse sense.

In October 2004, the groups held the Inaugural Australian Multicultural GLBTIQ Conference (AGMC) “Living and Loving in Diversity” at the St Kilda Town Hall (Victoria). For the first time (here and overseas) a highly successful Conference was held with over 200 participants per day. One of the major outcomes emanating from the Conference was the formation of a legally recognised non-profit organisation, the Australian Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex and Queer Multicultural Council Inc. (AGMC Inc.)
