Queerspace Youth, 100 Drummond Street, Carlton
Victoria

The 26th of January marks an important day of protest in so-called Australia. A day of mourning, resilience and resistance to colonisation. Each year, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders are joined by those in solidarity to march along the main streets of Narrm/Melbourne to protest the recognition of a national day of violence.

Join us to make bulk signs, posters and placards that you can bring along to rally.

All paints, cardboard and materials will be supplied.

When: Friday 24th January 2020 from 2pm - 6pm

Where: 100 Drummond Street, Carlton

Who: Queerspace Youth creates space for young people who identify as Queer, Trans, non-binary, gender diverse and / or Questioning. We're run out of drummond street services, a mental health support services run by members of the LGBTQIA community.
(in)visible is a program that is a space for those who identify as being QTIPOC (queer, trans, intersex person of colour). This also includes those of faith and those who aren't out as well.

We acknowledge the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin nations as the traditional custodians of the land where we work. We pay our respects to elders past and present and acknowledge their resistence to colonisation. Sovereignty has never been ceded and treaties have never been signed.
