🏳️🌈 Happy Pride Month and Topic Tuesday 🏳️🌈
For those I haven’t e-met yet, I’m TuxedoCat. June is Pride Month! 🏳️🌈
It’s 2 weeks into Pride Month so I wanted to reach out to invite all LGBTQIA+ and questioning people on the forums to join our LGBTQIA+ social thread! It’s a place where we can chat about fun things or give special support to each other. Click here to join in and introduce yourself! Re: LBGTIQ+ Social Space
At our Topic Tuesday on June 28, I'll be discussing my own lived experience of being queer with @Former-Member and @TideisTurning. We’ll chat about the radical history of Pride Month, finding connection and building community and growing up regionally!
All LGBTIAQ+ and questioning people, allies and those caring for LGBTIAQ+ people are invited to attend! Support this post and we’ll make sure to tag you in the Topic Tuesday post or interact here to be reminded when we start or jump into the post here Topic Tuesday // Pride Month: Connection and Growth // Tues 28th June, 2022 7-8:30PM AEST
And also, I wanted to share some specific mental health resources for our beautiful LGBTIAQ+ & questioning community:
- P4T: Peer support for and by trans communities, available Wednesday and Thursday 11am-7pm for people in NSW.
- QLife 1800 184 527: Provides LGBTQIA+ peer support and referral for people wanting to talk about a range of issues including sexuality, identity, gender, bodies, feelings or relationships. Available 3pm-midnight.
- YarnsHeal: First Nations Brotherboy and Sistergirl suicide prevention
If you have an LGBTIAQ+ person in your life or spot someone on the forums needing a little extra love, here some resources to support others
Can't wait to chat with you all about this ❤️
