If you’re same-gender attracted, gender diverse, or questioning your sexuality or gender identity, Bfriend can offer support.

This unique service has operated in SA for 25 years, and is open for all who have questions about sexuality, gender identity, and intersex variations. We offer peer support, community connections, workplace training and volunteering opportunities for the community.

You don’t have to be part of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer and asexual (LGBTIQA+) community to contact us – we can offer support to parents, friends, workers, and more! Our services are free and confidential and you won’t require a referral.

 

  Peer support & community connections

Bfriend’s Community Support Workers can work with you one-to-one and tailor support to your needs. We also offer a link-up service to match people newly identifying as LGBTIQA+ with trained volunteers who can provide peer support.

Our staff and volunteers are members of the LGBTIQA+ community, so have lived experience to share and can connect you with other LGBTIQA+-friendly services.

  Workplace training

LGBTIQA+ people may find it difficult to be open about their sexuality or gender identity, often fearful of receiving poor or discriminatory treatment because of it.

Our free, comprehensive workplace training encourages a better understanding of the needs of LGBTIQA+ people. It provides staff with more confidence to deliver an inclusive, best practice service to LGBTIQA+ individuals, their partners, families and the wider community.

  Volunteering

We are always looking for LGBTIQA+  volunteer mentors – please contact us if you are interested. We believe in celebrating diversity within the LGBTIQA+ community, so people of any age or background are encouraged to volunteer.
