(in)visible is a community driven program that connects queer and trans people from diverse cultural and religious backgrounds (QTPOC) aged 18-25 through workshops and events.
The (in)visible crew is made up of QTPOC, who are experts on how well being is articulated and responded to in community. We lead the project in acknowledgement that all too often our service system silos our (queer, faith or multicultural) social realities.
In collaboration with Minus 18, (in)visible produced an inter-sectional educational resource for school aged young people called “OMG I’m QTIPOC”.
