Spectrum | Albany Pride
A social group for young LGBTQIA+ people aged 12 – 25 in Albany.

This group for LGBTIQA+ identifying 12-25 year olds started as a sub group of Albany Pride in 2017, due to an increase in young people attending our Kate’s Place group saying they would like a group of their own.  We run the group with headspace Albany and the group is getting bigger all the time, with approximately 20 young people attending each month.

We meet monthly with the aim of introducing LGBTIQA+ young people to each other in order to reduce social isolation and promote linkages with other community supports. We also provide information regarding issues important to young LGBTIQA+ people such as mental health, self-harm and suicide, alcohol and drug use, sexual health and coming out.

All our events and activities are free of charge and are decided by the young people – movies, pizza, bowling, roller derby, fish and chips, beach – you name it we do it!

If you have ideas for an activity let us know.

Come along and meet some other people who are as amazing as you! Please note, this group is for people aged 12-25 only. You are welcome to bring a mate along with you or a support person, so long as they are also within this age range.

We understand it’s hard to sometimes turn up to a new group where you might not know anyone, so if you have any concerns about attending, or special needs that you would like to talk to us about before you come to Spectrum, please reach out to headspace Albany on (08) 9842 9871.

We are more than happy to discuss ways we can work with you to try and help accommodate your individual circumstances.

The groups two facilitators are a social worker from Albany Pride and a community engagement officer from headspace.
