International day against homophobia, biphobia, intersexism & transphobia (IDAHOBIT Day)

This year for IDAHOBIT Day (Friday 17 May 2019), all Melbourne Children’s Campus staff were encouraged to wear something rainbow in support of becoming an ally to the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex, Queer and Questioning, Asexual and Agender (LGBTQIA+) Community.

IDAHOBIT Day 2019

The highlight of the days’ celebrations on Campus was a morning tea hosted by The University of Melbourne Department of Paediatrics in the Health Education and Learning Precinct. Approximately 80 staff from each of the Campus Partner organisations were provided with an opportunity to showcase their most colourful outfits - while Jane Miller, the Acting CEO of The Royal Children’s Hospital, gave a very enthusiastic and supportive outline of some of the practical strategies for creating a safe and inclusive space within the Melbourne Children’s Campus.
