Partner with Us
Improve the lives of LGBTQIA+ Youth
There’s no one way to partner with Minus18. But every single one of our partnerships celebrate LGBTQIA+ young people, build inclusion and diversity, and drive connection with the LGBTQIA+ community.
As Australia’s largest LGBTQIA+ youth charity, we work directly and authentically with thousands of young people, and we’re young people ourselves. We have our finger on the pulse.
Visibility and awareness
Build awareness of your brand and signal your values to the tens of thousands of young people, schools, workplaces and families who access Minus18 each year.
The impact we’ll make together is huge! And we’ll always work to share the heartwarming stories and outcomes of the work we create together. We can even share it directly with your team.
The Minus18 Queer Formal is a yearly identity-celebrating, coming of age event, where 500 LGBTQIA+ young people dance the night away and where 75% make new friends. Queer Formal runs in Melbourne, Sydney and Adelaide, with tickets offered to attendees for free thanks to our supporters, and partners.
