Since October 2005 there has been a non-attached and financially independent department for queer affairs at the Vienna University Representation, whose existence and scope of duties are anchored in the statute.
As the term queer already wants to make clear, our presentation is aimed at the concerns of people who feel they belong to the LGBTIQ* community, but of course also at those who do not ascribe themselves to any category or community and yet not in a heteronormative way want to live).
We are committed to a university in which there is no place for sexism, homophobia, biphobia or transphobia. It is therefore one of the tasks of our department to support, inform and draw attention to the needs and problems of LGBTIQ* students. However, we also welcome all those who are not in direct contact with the community or who do not feel part of it, and simply want to help create more acceptance or support their relatives or friends in LGBTIQ*-related matters.
We offer people a contact point and support them in realizing their ideas and projects. We also try to offer financial and organizational support, but we also plan and implement our own initiatives.
We also consider it part of our job to refer people to other advice centers, organizations, events or clubs.
In addition, together with the Department for Feminist Affairs, we look after the funding pot for queer feminist young scientists.
If you need help, have concerns, ideas or just want to find a connection in the LGBTIQ* community, we look forward to your visit!
You are welcome to visit our department during the open consultation hours or call us during the office hours. Of course, you can also contact us by email or message at any time.
