Background

The elected Council identified a need for an Inner West Pride Centre at the beginning of its term in 2017. We ran a wide-scale visioning process with the community in March 2019 and also asked for suggested locations.

Read about the process so far.


The Pride Centre Expression of Interest Reference Panel

The panel will be made up of suitably motivated and experienced applicants, who will meet regularly, consult with their own communities and advise Council on the Expression of Interest process over the coming months.

Council wants the project to benefit from the lived experiences of the LGBTIQ community with the panel reflecting its range of gender, sexual, age and other diversities. We are particularly seeking applications from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, people with disabilities and those from CALD communities.
