Council commitment to the LGBTIQ+ community
We are committed to addressing and preventing discrimination affecting Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex, Queer and or Questioning (LGBTIQ+) community members. Our aim is to ensure a safe and inclusive community for all.
We take part in several events that celebrate our LGBTIQ+ community, including:
- Midsumma Festival

- IDAHOBIT Day.
Council's Rainbow Path
Knox is home to a permanent rainbow path. The path symbolizes our commitment to inclusion, diversity and support for the LGBTIQ+ community.
You can find the path outside the Eastgate South building, next to the Knox Civic Centre.
The path is 30m long and was painted by members of Council's LGBTIQ+ Working Group in November 2018.
All community members and visitors are welcome to visit the path. You can post photos and reference the path using the hashtag #KnoxRainbowPath
Rainbow ‘Path to Equality’
To celebrate IDAHOBIT 2019, Knox City Council unveiled a temporary installation on the Rainbow Path called ‘Path to Equality’.
It was a timeline of the progress of the LGBTIQ+ community towards social and legislative change in Victoria and Australia.
