The GASP project is Geelong’s safe and inclusive space for young people aged between 12-25. GASP provides a range of services and support to ensure that the strength and diversity of LGBTIQA+ young people are valued, celebrated and affirmed in the Geelong region.
Since 1996, the GASP project has been working to support same-sex attracted, transgender, gender diverse, and intersex young people who live, study, or work in the Geelong region.
GASP offers a number of social support groups for people aged 12-25, which meet in central Geelong. We talk about our experiences, have fun, and get information and advice.
GASP also offers a range of services for schools and organisations in the Geelong region, including:
Training for staff on the health and well being of LGBTIQA+ young people;
Support for schools around gender and sexuality, and how to develop a whole-school approach to creating a safe, respectful, and inclusive learning environment;
Training for service providers to help build capacity and develop strategies for LGBTIQA+ inclusive practice.
The GASP project is an initiative of the City of Greater Geelong’s Youth Development Unit.
