"Where can I find other young people like myself?"
Young & Gay is a workshop for young guys aged 26 and under, who are attracted to other guys. It provides a fun and welcoming environment for young people to meet new people and expand their social networks. It also offers an interactive and informative space for young people to talk about sexuality and wellbeing, including negative stereotypes, self-esteem, coming out, relationships, HIV stigma and sexual health.
LGBTI people are between 3.5 and 14 times more likely to attempt suicide than the national average. This is often a result of the pressures LGBTI Australians face and the impact of discrimination and abuse within society, and even their home environment.
You can help by giving peer support groups such as Young and Gay a place to exist, and respond to the needs of young people today.
