Shift hui (2017)

Rainbows in a Monochrome World

Navigating the world as someone from rainbow communities brings with it many challenges, taking different forms for different people. Dani, Lee, Lilly, Brandon, Ethan, Jaye and Tarn share some of their experiences coming out across different settings - with family, at school, work and coming from a background of faith.

A special thank you to the participants and InsideOUT for allowing this session to be recorded and shared.
