Das LGBTIQ-ALLY Netzwerk der TU Wien

Background

About 10% of the population are LGBTIQ* persons, i.e. lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intergender, queer. Even though the public acceptance and legal situation of LGBTIQ* persons in Austria has improved significantly over the past decades, LGBTIQ* persons still often experience difficulties and disadvantages today, especially in the professional context.

The TU Vienna ALLY* Network was founded to draw attention to the concerns of LGBTIQ* persons at TU Wien and to advocate for their rights.

What are LGBTIQ* Allies

Allies are people who are not necessarily part of the LGBTIQ* (lesbian/gay/bisexual/transgender/intersexual/queer) community themselves, but who want to actively support it and stand up against homophobia and discrimination.

The TU Wien Allies are committed to ensuring that all employees and students, regardless of their gender identity or sexual orientation, can work and study freely and without discrimination at the TU Vienna.
