Wendybird is a not-for-profit community group led by a collective of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex and Queer (LGBTIQ) people who are working together to intentionally grow a safer and always supportive community for people of diverse bodies, genders, relationships and sexualities, their friends, families and children to find meaningful connections.
Their program Wendybird Connects is a social group for the LGBTIQ+ community based Melbourne. They received a grant from Lesbians Incorporated to help with the running cost of hosting the events and to provide opportunities for people to: connect, learn, play, create, educate, share, grow and achieve.
Wendybird creates a grass roots approach to community development. Wendybird acts as a conduit for connection, acceptance and belonging resulting in improved mental health and reduced incidence of suicidality among peers.
