Sunshine Coast teen establishes LGBTI support group at school
A Sunshine Coast teenager has established an LGBT support group at their Noosa high school.
The year 9 student started the ‘Supporters of Queer Adolescents’ group with another pupil in the hopes of creating a safe space to discuss issues and bring about a sense of community for LGBT high school students.
The founder, Samual Bouzanquet, says the group is open for anyone who supports the LGBT community and not just for those who have identified their sexuality.
