Phoenix is Q-topia's gender diversity support group, supporting gender diverse, trans and any young person questioning their gender identity.
Phoenix meets every fortnight and is open to anyone under 30yrs. We aim to provide a safe environment where people can safely explore diverse issues and be supported on their journey.
A voluntary group of facilitators aged 18-35 organising fortnightly events, events include meeting up for coffee, DVD’s, games, picnics, other outings, workshops and networking with other national Queer Youth Groups or simply coffee and a talk.
