|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every 2 weeks that begins at 2:00 pm on Monday, repeating until December 11, 2023

Free To Be You is a drop in afternoon for young people in Port Stephens who identify as LGBTQIA+ or who are questioning their sexuality or gender identity.

Free To Be You is held at The Deck in Raymond Terrace from 2:00pm – 5:00pm every second Monday during school terms. The Group is open to young people aged 12 -20 years of age.

Free To Be You aims to provide:

  • a safe, autonomous, supervised space for LGBTQIA+ young people
  • a social network and friendships between young people which may not be available to them otherwise. This connection aims to reduce stigma, social isolation and increase self-esteem and connectedness
  • group activities
  • positive role models
  • discussions on current LGBTQIA+ politics or topics relevant to this group
  • resources on local LGBTQIA+ services, resources, supports and other youth services
