We pay our respects to all Australian Indigenous peoples and their cultures, and to Elders of past, present and future generations.

We honour the elders in the diverse communities of which we are a part and we celebrate the extraordinary diversity of people's bodies, genders, sexualities, and relationships that they represent.
