Is Women's Only LGBTIQA+ friendly?

Anyone who identities as a woman or non-binary is welcome to attend our Women's Only session. This position is consistent with Monash Council's Gender Equity Framework.

However, these sessions are specifically targeted to women from marginalised communities who would not otherwise be able to access the swimming pool during regular hours.

We are also currently exploring the possible introduction of trans and gender diverse programs which may be a more comfortable environment for trans and gender diverse people.
