Service Providers Network

Rainbow Connection

The Rainbow Connection will be a regular email update designed to link together service providers and key community members across the state who are providing support to LGBT young people in Regional Queensland as a part of the Open Doors LGBT Youth Suicide Prevention Project.

Supporting LGBT young people can feel like an isolating task, especially when you are located in regional areas and when it might be difficult to gain the support of your community and organisation. The ultimate aim of The Rainbow Connection is to connect service providers supporting LGBT young people, especially in regional Queensland, with each other. This will help us share ideas, advice, stories, resources and connect us with others who are also working very hard to support LGBT young people across the state.

You are more than a single person battling against homophobia, invisibility and isolation, you are someone who is an important part of a much larger picture. A picture that sees us working together to support LGBT young people to be healthy and happy in their own communities, and connected to a place where they can belong, be proud and celebrate their identities.
