Improving the lives of LGBTQIA+ youth

We’re creating an Australia where all young people are safe, empowered, and surrounded by people that support them.

Awareness & Visibility

We build awareness of the 2 in 3 LGBTQIA+ youth who still experience abuse for who they are. Our digital campaigns and partnerships start crucial conversations to amplify the voice of the next generation.

LGBTQIA+ Education

Creating an Australia free from discrimination is a job for everyone. We transform awareness into action through LGBTQIA+ training, workshops and resources that enable others to champion inclusivity – no matter their location.

Life-Affirming Programs

Our preventive model of mental health support tackles social isolation by creating spaces where LGBTQIA+ youth belong. Young people are at the forefront of our programs – and we're empowering them to be the next generation of LGBTQIA+ leaders.

Legendary partners

Our work wouldn’t be possible without the people who support us. If you’d like to join forces and work together, get in touch!

Minus18 is located on the land of the Yalakut Weelam Clan of the Boon Wurrung peoples, Australia’s First People and Traditional Custodians. We acknowledge their continued connection and contribution to land, water and community, and pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging. Sovereignty was never ceded; this always was, always will be, Aboriginal land.
