Gender Queer Support

genderqueer
adjective: gender-queer
denoting or relating to a person who does not subscribe to conventional gender distinctions but identifies with neither, both or a combination of male and female genders

From Wikipedia the free encyclopedia

Genderqueer (GQ), also termed non-binary or gender-expansive, is a catch all category for gender identities  that are not exclusively masculine or feminine—‌identities which are thus outside of the gender binary  and cisnormativity  Genderqueer people may identify as one or more of the following:

  • having an overlap of, or indefinite lines between, gender identity;
  • having two or more genders (being bigender, trigender or pangender);
  • having no gender (being agender, nongendered, genderless, genderfree or neutrois);
  • moving between genders or having a fluctuating gender identity (genderfluid); or
  • being third gender  or other-gendered, a category which includes those who do not place a name to their gender                                                                              

The aim of the Gender Queer Support Service is to offer support to clients who are Gender Fluid. Support includes frontline crisis and case management, linking clients with other specialised services that are working with Gender Queer people and to enable clients to feel safe and secure in accessing these services, we  provide psycho-social support and opportunities for engagement, we enhance the quality of life in relation to independence and self-determination, we promote the needs of gender queer  people to service providers, and to provide skills development and training to other service providers, especially generalist services so they can deliver good practice models of service delivery to the Gender Queer Community.

The Gender centre provides a monthly Queer Agenda support group
