Yellow Kitties – Round 2 2023 Grant Recipient

Yellowkitties is dedicated to organizing activities for queer Asian women, aligns seamlessly with Lesbians Incorporated’s mission of supporting lesbians and friends in Australia. Yellowkitties is a non-profit, unincorporated, 100% volunteer based social support group for Asian women who identify as lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer and intersex based in Melbourne. 

Every month, Yellowkitties witness a surge in membership requests, demonstrating the growing need for a safe and inclusive space for queer Asian women. Moreover, fellow queer and community organizations seek partnerships with us to share valuable knowledge and information. This blossoming network wouldn’t have thrived without the existence of Yellowkitties’ website.

The Grant from LInc will assist with the costs of website hosting, providing free or affordable events. We are determined to keep our activities accessible to individuals from diverse socioeconomic backgrounds.

This funding will cover a 5-year domain registration and 3 years of hosting, ensuring that Yellowkitties remains accessible and discoverable for the lesbian community. Additionally, a portion of the grant will be allocated to cover essential event supplies, such as paper plates, cutlery, and cups, enabling us to continue organizing inclusive events without passing administrative costs onto our members.
