Transcendence is a social and emotional support group for transgender and gender-diverse individuals, or those questioning their gender identity. 

The group is held on the last Tuesday of every month, from 6pm-8pm. The location is our Spring Hill venue, at 159 St. Paul’s Terrace, Brisbane (just a short walk from Fortitude Valley Station).  

Transcendence is a safe, confidential and friendly space, facilitated by two experienced Rainbow Counsellors. Participants share stories, give and receive support and advice. Each month participants discuss a different topic, from a list brainstormed by the group itself. 

You don’t have to book and there is no cost to attend, except gold coin donation for light refreshments. If you are coming for the first time, please arrive at 5:45pm to complete a short registration form.

We look forward to welcoming you to Transcendence, where we invite you to be just who you are and receive the support of a diverse and welcoming community.

If you would appreciate speaking to one of the Transcendence facilitators before you come, feel free to phone 1300364277 and request a call back from Casey or Dallas.

RAQ has been delivering LGBTI training to our staff across the state since 2009, helping them to become more confident and competent in working with LGBTI clients.

In early 2014 we began extending this training to other human services organisations and received overwhelmingly positive evaluations of our dynamic and experiential approach, as the following quotes from participants illustrate:

“Very thorough presentation. Excellent presenters. Learnt a lot today, thank you.”

“Loved this training! Opened my eyes to areas of peoples’ lives I had never considered.”.

“It was enlightening for me to learn that my acceptance of the Rainbow community did not necessarily mean a strong understanding. I have learnt a lot today, thank you.”

With a range of training modules offered, we can work with you to tailor a training program that meets your needs. To find out how the Rainbow Program at RAQ can help you and your staff to become more confident and competent in working appropriately with LGBTI clients, contact Rainbow Program Leader, Chris Pye, on: 1300364277.
