This Campaign Is Queer

This Campaign is Queer artworkIn May 2016 Merri Health and Moreland City Council joined forces with YGLAM Queer Youth Theatre Group for the launch of #ThisCampaignIsQueer.

A youth led campaign showing LGBTIQ young people who are isolated due to geography or circumstance that they are not alone

Using the power of social media, the Campaign will showcase the often, under-represented points of view of queer young people, and to show everyone that being queer is okay!

#tciq was established by YGLAM, a pioneering same sex attracted and gender diverse theatre ensemble for young people. YGLAM is a part of Merri Health, and offers a platform for queer young people to express themselves. For more information visit the This Campaign is Queer website or follow the campaign on Facebook
