HUGE NEWS: We're dedicating every single donation received during June to delivering LGBTQIA+ inclusion educationt to schools around Australia – completely for free. 

Whether you're supporting our work honour of Pride Month or for the end of the financial year, your tax-deductible donation will have real-world impact – allowing us to deliver 70 free education sessions to 70 schools around the country.

The stakes have never been higher to create inclusive and supportive classrooms and schools. Your donations will enable Minus18 to equip students and teachers with the knowledge needed to do just that.

And every $20 donation will mean one more student being able to access this education.

Who are we?

Minus18 is Australia’s charity improving the lives of LGBTQIA+ youth via life-affirming events, leadership programs, and education for the whole community.

We’re creating an Australia where all young people are safe, empowered, and surrounded by people that support them. Here's how we do it.

Awareness & Visibility 

We build awareness of the 2 in 3 LGBTQIA+ youth who still experience abuse for who they are. Our digital campaigns and partnerships start crucial conversations to amplify the voice of the next generation. 

LGBTQIA+ Education

Creating an Australia free from discrimination is a job for everyone. We transform awareness into action through LGBTQIA+ training, workshops and resources that enable others to champion inclusivity – no matter their location.

Life-Affirming Programs

Our preventive model of mental health support tackles social isolation by creating spaces where LGBTQIA+ youth belong. Young people are at the forefront of our programs – and we're empowering them to be the next generation of LGBTQIA+ leaders.  

Our Reach
Since 2011, we have transformed the lives of LGBTQIA+ young people Australia-wide:

  • Over 70,000 LGBTQIA+ youth have attended events
  • Over 36,707 people have participated in inclusion training
  • Over 4 Million people accessed free digital resources and education. 

Why we do it

Despite how far we've come, 2 in 3 LGBTQIA+ young people will still experience harassment and discrimination just for being who they are. 

  • Up to 21% of high school students around the world identify as LGBTQIA+
  • 2-5% of the population are trans or gender diverse 

Why what we do works

Minus18 measures program impact through evaluation and consultation:

  • ​​96% of young people attending events said Minus18 helped them to be their true selves.
  • 73% of young people make a new friend at Minus18.
  • 90% of high school students report feeling more confident standing up to bullying after a Minus18 workshop.

Will you join us? 

We’re providing life-changing support to young people, families, schools and workplaces all across Australia – but we can’t do it without your help. 

Your donation keeps our youth programs and digital resources completely free, ensuring our critical support reaches those who need it most.
