Everyone needs someone to talk to

StartOut matches young people with role models to help navigate their sexuality

Our work is aimed at building the resilience and self-acceptance of DSG people in Australia, and breaking the far too common cycle of negative self image, anxiety, and depression before it begins. By building communities, collaborating with some amazing organisations and using some really sexy technology, we hope to see happier, healthier people living more fulfilling lives.
