Minus18 aims to improve the health and wellbeing of, and provide a safe environment for, same-sex attracted and gender diverse young people in Australia, seeking to empower them to feel comfortable and confident in their sense of identity and assisting them to grow as happy, healthy individuals well into the future.

Who we are

Minus18 is Australia’s organisation for LGBTI youth – smashing homophobia and transphobia through events, support, training and campaigns.

What we do

Minus18 runs your favourite LGBTIQ youth events across Melbourne, Sydney and Adelaide as a place to meet other young people in a safe environment. That includes our night of nights, the Minus18 Queer Formal. And for young people all over the world, we provide online resources and community.

Minus18 offers youth workshops to help your young people understand LGBTIQ inclusion and create projects of their own that champion diversity.

We also offer tailored professional development workshops to help you support your LGBTIQ clients and team.

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

Professional developments are easily tailored to suit organisations/teams that already champion inclusion, or who are looking to start with the basics.

We are registered as: Charity.
