Professional Development to Help You Support Your LGBTIQ Clients and Team.


We deliver high impact workshops and training to bring you and your team in the mix when it comes to LGBTI issues. Our sexuality and gender workshops are all about building empathy, understanding identity and empowering young people to be the change they want to see.

Through understanding positive language & relationships, championing self expression and exploring the barriers that LGBTI people face, we provide the tools to challenge perspective and create inclusive and awesome spaces for everyone.

All our youth and adult training is backed by Australian research and best practice experience. The best thing? Our workshops are the only ones developed and delivered by young LGBTI people. That means the content you receive is informed by the most up to date experiences of LGBTI young people in Australia today.
