True colours

 

Overview

The True colours program recognises that people do not choose their sexuality or gender and therefore may lack a sense of belonging and/or struggle with their own identity when trying to understand sexuality. The True colours program was established to support young people residing in areas outside of Perth who are dealing with issues related to sexuality and gender. The program seeks to create a safe, casual environment where young people under the age of 25 can come together and openly discuss sexuality and gender. The groups meet once a fortnight for a few hours and the sessions can vary from hang-out sessions to structured workshop activities. The workshops generally have a personal development focus and guest speakers are occasionally invited to speak on specific issues.

In addition to the meeting sessions, the True colours program has a library and a range of other resources so as to provide young people with access to a wealth of information. The program also hosts various events and activities throughout the year creating many opportunities for young people to come together. The program is run by qualified workers and is open to young people of all sexualities, genders, and backgrounds. Programs exist in various communities across Western Australia including Albany, Bunbury, and Geraldton.
