Biographical Info

InsideOUT Kōaro is a national charity that helps rainbow (LGBTQIA+) young people live fulfilling, joyous lives through their work to increase the safety of school and community spaces. InsideoOUT Kōaro delivers a variety of advocacy and support to young people through hosting youth groups and helping students to establish rainbow clubs at school. We also provide professional development workshops to school staff, mental health and addiction staff, and other community organisations. In addition to this mahi, we bring events for young people to the community. We offer non-judgemental, inclusive resources to whānau, students, staff and allies alike and if we cannot provide the right support, we can connect people to the folk who can.
