    Peer support for Partners of Trans and Non-Binary Folks

    Is your partner negotiating their gender identity? This can sometimes be a confusing and isolating time for partners, so the group is aimed at supporting and connecting partners in a safe space so that they can share experiences, support each other, discuss topics that they want to discuss, share information and resources, explore strategies and build capacity to increase their own well-being and that of their families.

    The group meets on the third Wednesday of each month, from 5:30-7pm. Contact liv@workingitout.org.au or 6231 1200 for more information.

    "The first group I went to was in Launceston... about a week after I came out. I didn’t know where to go to meet people until I came across the Allsorts group. It felt good to be there and talk with other people and start to form networks of queer people, which is something I hadn’t done before."

    "I didn’t know anyone when I first went but after a while I got to know so many people and there’s been so many opportunities to make friends. That’s been a very positive experience. It’s so important because it’s really easy for Tasmanians to feel isolated. I experience that up here in Devonport. It gets really isolated and can be really hard. The Devonport group was really helpful..."
