Allied 4'em Youth Pride Project  Allied 4'em logo

Are you LGBTIQA+ and aged between the ages of 15-24?  Have you got a story the world needs to hear? Can your experience help educate LGBTIQA+ youth allies, educators and service providers?

If so, Goldfields Libraries wants to hear from you!

Allied 4’em is an innovative partnership between Goldfields Libraries, Bendigo PRIDE and Arena Theatre Company, funded by the Victorian Department of Premier and Cabinet. We aim to celebrate LGBTIQA+ youth in our region and help teach the broader community to look at the world through your eyes.

The project will have two parts. The first part will be guided by professional youth theatre facilitators and aims to build a community conversation around ‘being a great ally’. Created directed, performed and produced by young people, the online theatrical performance will help central Victorians to better understand the needs and experiences of LGBTIQA+ youth and how to best engage and support you.

The second part will take place on IDAHOBIT Day, Monday 17 May. Goldfields Libraries will host a post-show Allies Forum to discuss the themes explored in the performance. A panel of experts and LGBTIQA+ youth, as experts in your own lived experiences, will lead the discussion and offer a toolkit for families, teachers, employers, and others to help them become better allies.
