Trans Day of Visibility is an annual celebration of the achievements of the transgender, gender diverse and non-binary (TGDNB) community and a day for the whole community to show their support as allies and acknowledge the experiences of transgender people and the challenges they face.

It has been incredibly disturbing to see the recent anti trans protests.  As an organisation we recognise and condemn the harm such events can have on the health and wellbeing of the TGDNB community.

“Hateful events such as those at Parliament House can have a profoundly negative impact on a person’s mental health, and also perpetuates misinformation, emboldens anti-trans voices, and can lead to violence and abuse.  We stand in solidarity with the trans community and will continue to work to improve the health outcomes and equality of the local community and we are committed to removing the discrimination and marginalisation they face.” Sunbury and Cobaw CEO Phillip Ripper

We run a number of support groups for TGDNB people and their families in Sunbury and the Macedon Ranges and promote the rights of same sex attracted, intersex, bisexual, transgender and gender diverse (LGBTIQA+) people.  We also provide LGBTIQA+ inclusive practice training to local businesses and the broader community to help them to be more inclusive and understand the particular needs of the LGBTIQA+ community.

For our programs for young people, see our WayOut page and for programs for those over the age of 25, see our Country LGBTIQA+ Inclusion Program (CLIP) page.
