Undertaken over 131 days, the Queer Out Here project was created as both a consultation project, and an education drive in assessing and enabling LGBTQIA+ inclusion in regional and rural parts of Australia.

Over 1,000 students and teachers participated (both digitally and in-person) from across 55 regional areas to understand experiences across a variety of themes from personal safety, bullying and discrimination to the needs and desires for further support.
