Misty Misty Farquhar is the Manager for True Colours and the Safe Schools project based near here in Vic Park.

 What is True Colours? 

Young people have a lot going on already, but those who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual,
transgender, or intersex are more likely to experience discrimination and mental health

issues, particularly in rural areas. True Colours directly supports young LGBTIQ people in the South West, and also works with schools and the broader community to raise awareness and break down the barriers to safe and inclusive communities.


Information, support and advocacy for young people and their families, including individual support, peer groups, and referrals.


Working collaboratively with schools to implement strategies that challenge bullying and better support LGBTIQ students. This includes professional development for teachers/other staff, student workshops, assistance with the development of policies and provision of resources.


Professional development and education on a range of topics including sexuality/sex/gender and identity, language and labels, impacts of discrimination and creating LGBTIQ friendly services and supports.

We all struggle with adversity and face pretty big obstacles as we travel on our journey. Resilience is a quality that allows us to carry on despite the opposition we face. It can be hard to find at times and we risk letting stress and anxiety consume us.

How do we carry on when it seems so much is against us?

For our meeting in September, we’ll be discussing how we can keep resilience forefront when it’s needed most.

WHEN: Friday, September 4th 2015
TIME: 7.00pm for a 7.30pm start
WHERE: ACON Building, 414 Elizabeth Street, Surry Hills

After the discussion, you are welcome to join us for a drink or dinner at the nearby Royal Exhibition Hotel.

Our Melbourne chapter has grown significantly over the last few years, with people travelling long distances to attend the monthly meetings in the city. A number of people travel from the outer East, hence we have created a social f2b get together to strengthen the connections that have already been made, plus make some new ones with those that are not able to make the Melbourne meetings.These dinners are run with all the same guidelines as a regular chapter meeting, but will not have the speaker/discussion component. PLUS they are family friendly so children can attend. Up to date the nights have been well attended and we have had some great feedback, so I hope you can come along.

The details for the outer eastern f2b dinner on Monday 7th September,  6.30pm at Sofias Restaurant -99 Maroondah Highway, Croydon.

Please RSVP text or call  Gwen Godman 0499772642. Children welcome!
