NICHE Australia

National Institute for Challenging Homophobia Education (NI


NICHE Australia educates, challenges, enables and inspires so that lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and Intersex (LGBTI) people thrive in everyday rural communities.  It does this by:

  • Gathering the best ideas, people and resources in challenging rural homophobia and transphobia, and supporting LGBTI young people; in doing so, NICHE maps what's working, what's not and identifies gaps;
  • Working with, and building upon, successful, effective projects and organisations in regional, rural and remote Australian communities;
  • Partnering with mainstream and philanthropic organisations to leverage their resources for regional, rural and remote Australia.

We challenge rural homophobia and transphobia one town, one story and one cuppa at a time.

Communities we have worked with include: Mt Isa (QLD), Bunbury (WA), Shepparton (VIC) and northern Tasmania. Communities in NSW, WA and QLD are eager to have NICHE Australia partner with their communities.
