Queensland Government Multicultural Queensland Month Celebrate Multicultural Queensland Month with us. We are a state of many cultures and many languages – almost a quarter of Queenslanders are born overseas, and many of us have at least one parent born in a country other than Australia. In August each year we celebrate our diversity, recognising the benefits to Queensland of the many backgrounds, skills and experiences that make up who we are. This year, Multicultural Queensland Month (MQM) will celebrate how our communities create opportunities for everyone to access and enjoy good jobs, better services and great lifestyle through the theme “Many cultures, one Queensland: putting inclusion into action”. We encourage you to play a part in celebrating the month too. You can do that by planning activities or creating content that you can share with your friends, customers, staff and community members.
