This consultation is closed.

We received almost 200 contributions through our map and survey on places, buildings and objects that are historically significant to LGBTIQA+ communities. Thank you all for providing your feedback.

All of your contributions are currently being reviewed by a heritage consultant for the next stage of the study. We'll be finalising this in a report later in the year.

A bit about the project

We want to do more to recognise places, buildings and objects that are historically important to our LGBTIQA+ communities.

As part of our LGBTIQ+ Strategy 2021-2024, we are working to identify and document locations that are historically important to LGBTIQA+ communities, to ensure they will be celebrated and understood into the future.

We have a compiled list of places, buildings and objects that may have special association with LGBTIQA+ communities.

This work is informed by our LGBTIQ+ Strategy 2021-2024, State Government research, our partnership with Queer-ways Melbourne and community outreach delivered by our Council officers.

How did you help?

We asked you to share your personal insights and memories about places, buildings or objects that are special to LGBTIQA+ communities so we can better understand, protect and celebrate Yarra’s LGBTIQA+ heritage. Your feedback will help us in updating the Thematic History of Yarra and may inform statements of significance used in our heritage listing.

You did this by dropping pins on the map below, to share information on an already identified place, building and object or by nominating an additional place/ building or object which is of historical importance. We also received a series of surveys for those who wanted to contribute privately.
