Be You

ABOUT

Redefining Queer Identity

If you judge an LGBTQ+ person only on their sexual orientation or gender, they will spend their lives believing that their sexual orientation or gender is their only identity.

We are subtlety coerced into adopting and expressing an identity that we have been forced to believe is socially acceptable.

 

This forced identity has led to a crisis of collective and individual low sense of self across the community. 

 

For many of us, our dreams and ambitions are stifled and silenced by those around us.

 

We live in a world that constantly tells us what to do, how to act, what to be.

  • Don’t be too loud

  • Don’t be too gay

  • Be fun

  • Be camp

  • Don’t be straight acting

  • Be my “gay-best-friend

 

One of the greatest challenges we face is the disconnection between who we are and who we think we ought to be. Sometimes, this difference fuels our self-loathing. Most times, we lose our sense of self.

 

There is the need, across the LGBTQ+ community, to be heard, to be seen, to be authentically validated for who we are.​

 

Nurturing our LGBTQ+ identity, relationships and purpose helps us navigate through the world and our role in it – with resilience and creativity.

This sparks a new understanding and acceptance of ourselves, each other, and the world.

 

We provide the tools, connections and community to help you do that.

We inspire imagination, encourage curiosity and cultivate possibilities. 

We believe in your power of resilience and creativity.

Together we listen, reflect and respond.

 

Across Rainbows is a community that propels itself forward, not through sexual or gender identity, but through our unique voices that redefine Queer identity.

A FRESH APPROACH TO

QUEER MENTAL FITNESS

Supporting the sexual, social, mental and spiritual well-being of LGBTQ+ people.

Taking back control of what it means to be LGBTQ+, being who we are instead of who the world thinks we should be.

Challenging and changing the narrative that the world has ingrained on us.

Providing the community with the tools needed to stand up strong in a sometimes very hostile and unsafe world.

Championing the LGBTQ+ community with passion, courage and integrity.
