"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."

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..."
