Switchboard Victoria’s Out & About program, in partnership with Thorne Harbour Health are hosting this free event with the aim to uplift and connect Lesbian/Bi+, Trans and Non-Binary people over 50 with each other, and with services that will support and affirm their individual, unique journeys through Older Age.

This specific cohort is invited based on some shared experiences when accessing, and using services. And to provide a platform for greater connection and understanding between these diverse groups.
