The Humanist Society of Queensland (HSQ) advocates for the rights of non-religious people. We work to ensure that human rights are upheld over religious rights. HSQ seeks to educate our members and the public about the humanist tradition and the positive contribution it’s made to our society. Our vision is of a world in which all individuals are treated fairly regardless of ethnicity, sex or system of belief. We want to see an open and secular society and are willing to work with others of different beliefs for the common good.

We are affiliated with the Council of Australian Humanists Societies and the International Humanist and Ethical Union.
