Workshops to Tackle Bullying and Empower LGBTI Youth.


We run workshops for young people to chat about sexuality and gender, and learn the answers to questions they don't know how to ask. Our facilitators are all young people, who'll explore LGBTIQ identities and ways to tackling bullying. Minus18 is about empowering young people to be the change they want to see; creating young leaders and empathy builders in your school and community.

Through understanding positive relationships, championing self expression and exploring the barriers that LGBTIQ people face, we then equip your young people with the tools they need to challenge discrimination and create inclusive and awesome spaces for everyone.

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.
