In fact, we are the longest running organisation of our kind in the Southern Hemisphere.

    As WA’s main LGBTI community service our focus is on providing essential services to the gay, lesbian, bisexual, trans* and intersex communities, including our peer counseling phone line, health and wellbeing initiatives and community capacity building. We also offer a number of training options for professionals including the Opening Closets Mental Health training and other half and full-day workplace training in order to improve accessibility for LGBTI people. We also have a successful history of running funded projects, often in partnership with other community groups.

    QLife

    Opening Closets Mental Health Training
    This training aims to share information and develop skills for professionals working with Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex (LGBTI) populations. Download our flyer for more information here.

    QLives
    QLives is a nation wide project telling the stories of individual LGBTI people, the stories heard every day at QLife. Learning about other people’s stories and experiences can really help put a light on those parts of your own life that you may be struggling with, especially when you can see aspects of your own story reflected in what you’re watching. It’s also the most effective way to put a human face to ‘LGBTI’, and to help people outside of our communities to understand that we’re more than a confusing acronym.
