Queer Collaborations (QC or QC's) is a national Australian queer conference. The conference is held annually, usually in July. In recent years, the conference has attracted 300-400 delegates.

It is often referred to as a student conference, although that is not strictly true. The majority of delegates are students, but the facilitation collectives have not usually restricted registration. The conference has traditionally been supported by the National Union of Students of Australia (NUS) and has used the NUS Standing orders, but officially the conference is autonomous and not affiliated with NUS.

History Edit

The conference began in 1991 as a one day meeting of students from universities around Sydney. Eventually QC expanded to its current format of a one-week national conference.

A recent challenge to the conference occurred in 2001 in Newcastle, when a political dispute caused the conference floor to split. Many of the delegates left the conference, and formed their own conference in a bar down the street.

This year (2007) it was held in Hobart, Tasmania. In 2008, it will be held in Melbourne, Victoria.
