WHERE THE MONEY GOES

PROVIDING ACCESS TO EVENTS

Our top priority is making sure as many young people as possible are able to access Minus18 events. Many of our inclusion initiatives are not funded, so we rely on donations to keep them going.

Initiatives like Auslan interpreters, sponsored travel for regionally located young people, and providing free tickets to youth who can't afford or ask their parents to attend events.

We know there are still heaps of young people in Australia who don't have access to LGBTIQ spaces, resources and events, and it's our mission to ensure that every LGBTIQ young person is provided with support.

PEER SUPPORT

Growing up LGBTIQ isn't easy, but we provide the tools needed to support young people through it.

Minus18 provide resources, digital content, and videos that equip young people all over Australia with the information they need to figure out their sexuality and gender identity. All our support is written and designed by LGBTIQ youth, with the help of mental health professionals.

We're the ones at the forefront of change, which means Minus18 support is a bit more engaging than your regular peer support, and most importantly, it's relevant to the evolving experiences of LGBTIQ youth.

YOUTH DRIVEN ACTION

We support young people with leadership and mentoring opportunities that most young people aren't trusted with. Minus18 youth are mentored to develop resources, campaigns and initiatives that have a real impact on the lives of others.

Everything we do puts young people at the forefront, providing them with a platform to tell their own stories in their own way.

Young people who access Minus18 go on to do amazing things, and we're proud of everyone in our family who has supported the mission to create a safer Australia for LGBTIQ youth.
