The Macquarie University Queer Collective is an officially affiliated student group which is open to staff and students who identify as LQBTQIA+, as well as their Straight Allies. While the Queer Space provides a physical room for people to get together, the Queer Collective is the social group that organises events and brings people together to create a sense of community.
The Queer Collective has an official Facebook group which is a way to meet other people, keep in contact, and get information about upcoming events. In order to protect the anonymity of its members, the Facebook group is set to private. To gain access to the Facebook group, or to contact the Queer Collective, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
