Are you a guy with a girl’s body?
Are you a girl with a guy’s body?
Don’t feel like either a guy or a girl?
Feel like you are a bit of both?
Or maybe you’re not sure? You aren’t the only one!
Come and meet other young people just like you at Jellybeans!
Or visit our online blog for transgender young people
Jellybeans is a social support group for Transgender, gender variant and gender queer young people and those questioning their gender identity aged under 24.
Open Doors acknowledges that gender is fluid and that feelings and expression of gender may or may not change over time, and so in this group there is no expectation or requirement for young people to ‘decide’ upon their gender identity, adopt a particular label, or to act, behave or dress in any particular way to express their gender.
Young people are encouraged to explore their gender in their own time and express this in ways that they are comfortable in doing so.
Young people are also able to bring along family and friends to the group if they so wish as longs as they are respectful of the group space and the other participants in the group.
The facilitators and volunteers who support Jellybeans are Transgender or Gender Queer people themselves, or have extensive experience and knowledge of transgender experiences.
Jellybeans is held on the 1st and 3rd Thursday of the month from 3pm to 6pm at Open Doors.
Young people must attend a separate Intake appointment prior to coming along to the social space. Please contact one of our friendly workers to organise this appointment.
