Beyond Perth

Find out what’s going on in our community and get involved!

Being LGBTIQ+ can make it harder to meet others who understand where you are coming from so it’s important to link in with the community for support, social networks, or to do your bit to help others in the community. There’s heaps out there!


Many LGBTIQ organisations are reliant on volunteers (including Freedom Centre) to provide their services. Plus, doing something to help others can make you feel good about yourself and you can learn heaps while making a difference!


The best places to find out about what’s available in your local community are the local LGBTIQ organisations or the local LGBTIQ press. Most University Guilds also have a queer department too. 


QLife also operate around Australia, you can call them between 3:00pm and 12:00am on 1800 184 527 or go to www.qlife.com.au to chat online

Perth Community Groups

You can find heaps of different Perth-based LGBTIQ community groups here:

Perth Gaymers group
A social community group for geeks, gamers and allies no matter their gender or sexual orientation with weekly events. Find them on Facebook here.

Rural WA Community Groups

Living in rural and regional areas and being same sex attracted, sex and/or gender diverse can pose even more challenges, but support is out there!


Freedom Centre provides Info beyond Perth via email, phone, and our website and you can also get involved with the online FC Community by subscribing to our E-News or by checking out the FC Tumblr (fcyeah.tumblr.com).
