Melbourne’s new GLBTIQ multicultural social support group

Exciting news from the Australian Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex and Queer Multicultural Council (AGMC Inc).


New Multicultural Social Support Group

The AGMC Inc. is pleased to announce the creation of a new Multicultural Social Support Group. This group has been established to fill a void that has existed for many years in communities that are not represented by individual cultural groups.

In Melbourne today we have cultures that are strongly represented by existing groups. The Greek, Italian, Latin, Asian, Maltese, Muslim and Jewish communities are currently represented by existing groups however as far as we are aware, there is nothing or very little in the form of a group for many cultures.

This new group has been established primarily for the cultures that have no options of support when seeking support from others in the same or similar culture. The idea of establishing this group came about as we have been approached by many people who are looking for this avenue for themselves. We now invite all those individuals and anyone else that identifies as Multicultural and GLBTIQ to come along to our inaugural meeting and tell us what your needs are and how we can help. Come and meet like minded individuals who have similar concerns and interests as you. Make new friends and establish new networks.

We thank all those that have prompted us to establish this new group and we hope that many find it a useful outlet and that over time we can assist in the creation of new multicultural social/support groups in Melbourne and beyond. We also thank the VAC for their support of this group.

The intention is to hold the meetings on the first Monday of each month. Details of the first meeting are as follows:

Date:         Monday 5th September 2011
Time:        7.30pm to 9.30pm
Location:   VAC/GMHC – 6 Claremont Street, South Yarra
