The Victorian Pride Centre, which is going to be the centre of Australian LGBT community, decided to add black and brown stripes to its logo to represent LGBT people of colour. The members of the centre regard it as a mark of respect for diversity and inclusion of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander LGBTI people and the LGBTI majority, which is not Anglo-Saxon.

The Victorian Pride Centre, which is going to be the centre of Australian LGBT community, decided to add black and brown stripes to its logo to represent LGBT people of colour. The members of the centre regard it as a mark of respect for diversity and inclusion of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander LGBTI people and the LGBTI majority, which is not Anglo-Saxon.

The board of a centre had announced few reasons in favour of a change. One of them is that the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander LGBTI people have helped to build the community and activist organizations available in Australia nowadays. So, in this way, they could be treated and returned the favour. And the other is that diversity and inclusion can be welcomed and supported in such a simple way. Margaret Hansford, a board member, commented: “Our previous logo was an interim logo the board envisaged would change with the evolving discussion about what the Pride Centre will mean for the Victorian LGBTI community.”

People in social media differently react on the change, but most of the feedbacks are positive.
