LGBTIQ+ inclusion

Defence provides a work environment based on respect and trust. The policies are inclusive and entitlements are not limited by a member's sexual orientation, gender or gender identity.

Air Force personnel are encouraged to participate in conferences and LGBTIQ+ community events. A guide containing practical advice and support is available for LGBTIQ+ members in the Air Force.

Defence engages regularly with the Defence LGBTI Information Service (DEFGLIS) who proudly support Australian Defence Force (ADF) serving members, ex-service members and ADF veterans and their families. Defence participates in roundtable discussions with other APS agencies through membership of Pride in Diversity and as regular attendees at the APS Pride community of practice.
