OUTspace is a peer support group for LGBTIQ+ (and questioning) young people & their friends & supporters (ages 14-25).
Meetings are on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month from 4pm-5:30pm, usually at 278 Argyle St, North Hobart (but not always so it's best to contact the office before your first attendance).
OUTspace offers a way to meet other LGBTIQ+ (or questioning) young people in a safe and inclusive space. Meetings provide the opportunity to talk about challenges or celebrations, to participate in activities ranging from screen printing to Uno, picnics in the park to attending various community events.
Some feedback from group attendees:
“Meeting other people with similar experiences has improved my confidence in health & wellbeing.”
“It was really good to see others in a similar position as [me].”
“Just knowing I have support from a likeminded group who will listen [has improved my confidence and resilience].”
OUTspace is facilitated by Working It Out and headspace Hobart.
