Equality Awareness Youth

The I’m Local Project aims to help queer & gender diverse youth all over Aotearoa to feel valued, recognised and supported in their local communities.

Kicked off in 2014 by RainbowYOUTH, the I’m Local Project focuses on contacting high schools, medical centres, hospitals, libraries, marae and community centres in more rural or isolated area of Aotearoa and supplying them with free resources about gender and sexuality.

So far, we've delivered 60,000 booklets & posters to communities in Northland, wider Auckland, Waikato, Hawkes Bay, Bay of Plenty & Southland.

With almost daily requests for resources from organisations around the country, we're fast running out of these resources & posters.

So, we're asking Aotearoa to pitch in to help us print another 40,000 of these booklets and posters, so that we make sure we can keep up with the demand!
