Let’s dive deeper into the LGBTIQ+ Movement

In an ideal world, everyone would have access to the same resources and rights. However, reality is a different picture. The LGBTIQ+ movement is testimony to the fact that legal and human rights are not accessible to all. 

LGBTIQ+ inclusivity goes deeper than tokenistic office policies. Empathy, Equality and Equity is the need of the hour. 

In this course, you will learn about

  • The gaydar, i.e. an intuitive understanding of someone’s sexual orientation
  • The archaic gender roles and stereotypes that force LGBTIQ+ people to hide their identity
  • Why special measures are required to uplift people who identify on the LGBTIQ+ spectrum
  • The difference between equality and equity in the context of the queer movement 
  • The legal rights of LGBTIQ+ people including marriage equality, equity in pay etc. 
  • A list of countries where LGBTIQ+ people are safe and countries where they are not welcome 
  • How LGBTIQ+ people have different experiences in their childhood, teens, adulthood when compared to cis-straight folk 
  • The struggles, abuse, discrimination and violence faced by LGBTIQ+ people
  • The major events in the LGBTIQ+ movement including the Harry Hay case, Stonewall Riots, etc. 

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.
