LGBTI Youth Seeks New Home

minus18topshotHELP! Can you help Minus18 find a new home?

Minus 18 is australia’s largest youth led organisation for gay, lesbian, bisexual and trans youth. It’s a vital resource for kids coming to terms with their sexuality, breaking down their isolation, and helping them through any bad times they encounter. And we all know it can be rough being a young LGBTI person.

It does get better, and one of the reasons it gets better is the work of people like Minus18.

But they are about to lose their home, and need to find a new one soon. Can you help? CEO Micah Scott writes:

It’s with a heavy heart that I write to let you know that our landlord has decided not to renew our lease in order to demolish the building our office is in (how dramatic is that?)

It’s been a great 2.5 years in the space, and our home has enabled our organisation to grow, providing a hub for our volunteers and staff to create amazing change.

Currently we are scouting for a new youth hub space and would love to be connected with anyone who have the capacity to support us with free or low cost space.

The space needs to be:

  • Free, or low cost
  • 150m2 – 250m2 of open plan layout
  • suitable for small youth events
  • close to public transport
  • within 7km of the CBD

Minus18TV has lots of stories, like this one about challenging homophobia in schools, to give you an idea of the great work they do. If you can help Minus18 find a new home, contact them at the address below.
