NICHE partners lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, gender diverse, intersex and queer (LGBTIQ) people and mainstream organisations in regional, rural and remote communities to make those communities safer, more supportive, welcoming and inclusive.  For five years we have partnered the Victorian State Government and Commissioner for LGBTIQ+ Communities to work with 29 regional and rural communities on the LGBTIQ Equality Roadshow, Communities of LGBTIQ Practice gatherings and LGBTIQ Rainbow Ready Roadmap.  Find out all about it here: www.engage.vic.gov.au/lgbtiq

It is ‘What Happened Next?’ after the 266-day Beyond ‘That’s So Gay’ Challenging Homophobia Tour of Rural Australia completed by Daniel Witthaus in 2010: www.thatssogay.com.au

NICHE aims to:

  • Gather the best ideas, people and resources in challenging rural homophobia and heteronormativity, and supporting LGBTI young people; in doing so, NICHE can map what’s working, what’s not and identify gaps;
  • Work with, and build upon, successful, effective projects and organisations in regional, rural and remote Australian communities;
  • Partner with mainstream and philanthropic organisations to leverage their resources for regional, rural and remote Australia.

We’re hoping to challenge rural homophobia, bi, trans and Intersex phobias one town, one story and one cuppa at a time.
