CASP Stories: The Rainbow Express

Filed : Country Arts Support Program (CASP), Local and industry news .

Central West Women’s Health Centre will run creative workshops where LGBTIQA+ young folk can meet, make, and share. Starts March 12, Bathurst.

The Rainbow Express is a 10-session group for young people of diverse sexuality, sex or gender who are 16 to 25 years of age. You can come along to the group if you identify as LGBTIQA+, or if you are questioning your gender, sexuality or sexual identity. You can come to a few sessions, or to all of them.

“Each week we’ll learn a different craft, and chat about a different topic. It will be pretty flexible, and you can choose to share your thoughts or listen to what others have to say, and we’ll have info available for you to take home if you’d prefer. The Rainbow Express is an opportunity to hang out and make stuff with likeminded folk in a friendly and safe place,” project artist Karen Golland said.

The Rainbow Express is a social group and not a group counselling session. “While we are unable to provide counselling during these workshops, we can link you in with information and services, both in Bathurst and online.”

If you, your parents or people who care for you have any questions, you/they can call the  Central West Women’s Health Centre on 6331 4133 or email
