LGBTI support

The Faculty of Medical and Health Sciences aims to be an inclusive and safe space for all members of our LBGTI community.

As part of our commitment to supporting LGBTI staff and students, our faculty has participated in both University-wide and faculty-specific LGBTI events.  

Queer Quads

In May 2018, both Grafton and Tāmaki Campuses hosted bake sales as part of the University-wide Queer Quads event. Staff and students donated delicious baked goods for the sale. Across both campuses, our faculty raised almost $200 for Shakti NZ and Rainbow Youth.

In the past, our faculty has also taken part in the annual pride parade and hosted its own rainbow groups. If you are interested in starting your own rainbow group for FMHS, get in touch with us using the contacts below.
