Sexual Violence Awareness Month

Sexual Violence Awareness Month is held in Queensland each October to raise community awareness about sexual violence, promote the support options available to people affected by sexual violence, and continue to uphold the message that sexual violence will not be tolerated.

This year’s theme is inspired by the ‘Start by Believing’ global campaign, transforming the way we respond to people who have experienced sexual violence.

Activities and events are happening across Queensland to celebrate and recognise efforts to support victims and survivors, with many landmarks around the state being lit up in teal, a colour symbolising healing and trustworthiness.
