LGBTIQ+ awareness is crucial if you want to build a safe, inclusive space for everyone in your team. 

In this course, you can learn about the important terms used in the rainbow community, what each of the letters in the acronym stands for and the best ways to make LGBTIQ+ feel comfortable and valued. 

Here is a short breakdown of what you’ll learn in this course

About Instructor


I’m Bronte Price, a full-time male marriage and funeral celebrant. In my spare time, I’m a qualified trainer, veggie gardener, foodie, and piano player. I married my husband, Clint, in April 2019 – it was the best day of our lives! It was both exciting and fascinating planning our own wedding “from the other side” and it gave me a great insight into what couples go through in the leadup to their special day. The whole experience made me a better celebrant! Clint and I are parents to our beloved rescue kelpie, Bingo, aged five. Most Sunday afternoons will find us at DTs, in Richmond, one of Melbourne’s iconic gay pubs, catching up with our close mates. As a former senior executive in state and local government (most recently as Assistant Director Data Analytics with the Victorian Ombudsman), I’ve picked up some pretty useful skills that I’ve been able to put into practice as a celebrant.

Great Course

Crazy amount of information on here. Thought I had a bit of an idea of what it meant to be in the LGBTIQ+ community - had no clue!

Really good and current information

The information was very detailed and gave a good background for how the community has come to be in its current form. It was interesting and had good sources to back all of the information shown. I was able to pick up new and information which can help me with future interactions.

Clear as a bell!

This is a much-needed learning tool in so many areas of society. The delivery and materials are excellent. Bronte's empathic presentation makes it really easy to grasp. I like the "bite-sized" chunks of info. "Unpacking the acronyms" is really informative. I found the flags section very interesting. Didn't enjoy having to write stereotypes but it makes you realise what is still out there!

learning how important terminology can be

The content was great. The videos are great. I really enjoy Bronte's teaching approach I liked how I had to write answers in text. Makes me think about using the appropriate terminology. It's great practice I really struggled with having to write down the stereotypes, especially as the negative ones were the expected answers
