Well last year was massive, and the Darwin Pride Festival team has already started meeting for this year. BUT, it can’t happen without volunteers. If you are able to lend a hand in helping to make Darwin Pride Festival 2018 a reality, then get in touch via the Darwin Pride Facebook page or join their next meeting.
|Rainbow Territory is meeting fortnightly and is working on the following
– review of the Anti-Discrimination Act
– long term funding for Safe Schools
– mental health & suicide prevention advocacy
– change the births, deaths and marriages act NT so that people don’t have to get gender reassignment surgery to change their ID to their gender identity
– supporting community connection through the outnt website and other projects
What have we done recently?
You can get involved too. Email: email@example.com
Not interested in any of the above? If you have an idea and want people to work on it with you, Rainbow Territory can help share information or a call to action through the OUTNT Facebook page or this newsletter, just get in touch and tell us what you need.
And finally, if you want to provide feedback about Rainbow Territory’s work (good and bad) you can do so via the outnt website www.outnt.info/rainbowterritory We work on things that we think are important to the community, so tell us how we are going.
Two community members are running a project to improve and update the listings on the QLife database for the NT.
QLife is Australia’s first nationally-oriented counselling and referral service for LGBTI people. QLife provides nation-wide, early intervention, peer supported telephone and web based services to diverse people of all ages experiencing poor mental health, psychological distress, social isolation, discrimination, experiences of being misgendered and/or other social determinants that impact on their health and wellbeing.Why does it need to be updated? Counsellors who are online get requests for help from the NT, but the list of organisations who can help on the ground is not up to date. This means people in the NT can’t get on the ground help.
What can you do? If you know about or work for an organisation that you think should be on the QLife database please email the details to firstname.lastname@example.org
Please include the following:
Northside Health NT runs monthly LGBTI Specialist Clinics.
Visiting GPs specialising in LGBTI health run a 2 day clinic on a monthly basis to provide welcoming, high-quality health care to members of the LGBTI community.
Call 7999 7448 or email admin@northsidemedical to find out when the next one is running and to book an appointment.

|Books Gone Wilde the regular LGBTQI community library has had a lot of erotica donated to it over the years. But it just doesn’t get read enough. Some of it is good, some of it is so bad its good, and some of it is currently being eaten by moths. Let’s give it some life, and at the same time talk about something we all think about about – sex.
The people who run Books Gone Wilde want to run an event at the Darwin Fringe Festival in 2018 that takes some of the erotica from the page to the stage. We need people who are interested in performing some erotica on stage (not actually shagging, just actually reading or performing through words).
March – planning
