Queer Youth Together (QYouT)

QYT

Queer Youth Together (pronounced QyouT) is a program for LGBTIQ+ young people that commenced on the 22 March 2017.  QyouT provides a safe place, activities, networking, resources, and just good fun.

QyouT now meets every Wednesday between 5.30pm-7.30pm!   Each week will now alternate between having a structured evening or just dropping and hanging out.  (Drop in @ The Diversity Hub also operates whenever we are open!)
