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 operates whenever we are open!)
