Past projects

Queer Voices

In 2019 we delivered 'Queer Voices', a live storytelling project showcasing the stories of local young people who identify as LGBTIAQ+. 

Our wonderful young people shared their stories at 4 community events throughout the year. The impact of these stories being shared has been life changing for many people involved.

Queer Voices was supported by the Victorian Government through the Healthy Equal Youth program

Loos for You

In 2018 with the help of local LGBTIAQ+ young artists we made some radical changes to the inclusivity of EV's Youth Centre. These young artists designed and executed three gender neutral art pieces to be displayed on the toilet doors to replace the gender binary art pieces that were there before. 

These artworks were installed accompanied by inclusive signage.

Youth Uploaded

Again in 2018 (we were busy that year!) a group of budding young film makers created a video highlighting what it's like to 'come out' as LGBTIAQ+.

 

'Youth Uploaded' was funded by VicHealth's Bright Futures Challenge

Equal Sports

In 2016, our local LGBTIAQ+ young people and allies went out into the community to capture the importance of inclusion within sport.
