Rainbow Ready Roadmap

The Rainbow Ready Roadmap is a set of resources for Victorian rural and regional communities to build lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and gender diverse, intersex and queer (LGBTIQ+) inclusion. The roadmap supports the Victorian Government’s Pride in our future: Victoria’s LGBTIQ+ Strategy 2022-32 by enabling the creation of safe, strong and sustainable communities. Developed through extensive consultation with LGBTIQ+ communities, the Roadmap provides the framework to support communities in obtaining Rainbow Ready status: a public display that a setting is welcoming, safe and inclusive of LGBTIQ+ people.

You can learn more about the Rainbow Ready Roadmap on the Victorian Government website; or access the relevant setting guide, assessment & evaluation tool, action plan tool & Rainbow Ready status checklist for your business or organisation below.
