The organisation also runs and supports awareness campaigns like the Day of Silence and Pink Shirt Day. National Coordinator of InsideOUT, Tabby Besley says "It makes such a difference when people give their time and skills to fundraise for us - it means we can put more energy into doing our work and it makes our team feel valued and supported by the community.                 "InsideOUT is currently developing a couple of resources to help make our schools safer for young people of diverse sexualities, sexes and genders so the money raised from a Paper Rainbows will be a huge help in enabling us to get those out to schools and communities," she says.                         Tickets are $10 unwaged and $20 waged and cash sales will be available at the door.
