Eastern Diversity Group
Established in 2009, Eastern Diversity Group (EDG) is a social support group for anyone aged 15-25 who is LGBTIQ+, or questioning! EDG is a safe place for you to be yourself, it is a great way to make some friends, try new things and eat some free food.
Participants are involved in developing what activities or events are in each Term. We meet weekly on Thursdays 3:00pm-4:45pm (during school Term) at Youth ConneXions in Box Hill Central. If you would like to come along, we encourage you to call ahead of time on 9890 2673 and ask to speak to Mich our Program Coordinator; otherwise feel free to show up on the day!
The program was originally developed as an extension of FAN’s ‘Alsorts’ response – it’s core aim is to provide a safe space for LGBTIQ+ young people who do not have support from their family of origin, or at risk of, or experiencing homelessness.
