Note: We currently are not running any over 18s LGBTQIA+ social events, however we often partner and collaborate with Out Loud and Proud Port Macquarie (OLP) who run local events for adults in the queer community. As supporters of Headspace, OLP often offer sweet discounts to their events, so if you are a client of ours aged 18-25yrs, then email to see what's on. If you wish to know more about this local organisation or get involved you can connect via their Facebook here
