Bring family and friends together by hosting a rainbow dinner party, after work drinks, a rainbow picnic, or LGBTQIA+ themed movie night.
You could even fundraise by encouraging everyone to donate what they'd normally spend on a night out.
We've all had loads of practice doing things digitally now – and it's still a great way to bring everyone together, no matter your location!
Our faves? Rainbow digital trivia night, online rainbow crafternoon, digital drinks, or even live-streamed group workout!
3. Don't forget the rainbows!
The more rainbows, the bigger the impact! Grab a Pride Pack, filled with everything you need for a great IDAHOBIT event, from fundraising ribbons to conversation cards, flags to cupcake flags.
Plus, you'll be equipped to champion inclusivity year-round!
Deck your home out with rainbows with a Pride Pack. You'll save up to 60% off the RRP of these rainbow goodies, AND 100% of proceeds from every single purchase goes towards supporting LGBTQIA+ youth Australia-wide.
Send out a thank you note or download our thank you certificate to give to everyone involved. If you raised money, announce how much in the newsletter or in assembly.
KEEP THE GOOD VIBES FLOWING
1. Start a Stand Out group
Create a student led Stand Out group (also known as Queer-Straight Alliances or Diversity Groups). Stand Out groups are a great way to support LGBTI students all year round. For tips on how to start one, check out the Stand Out resource.
2. Celebrate LGBTI History Month
October is LGBTI+ History Month, a chance to learn more about the inspiring history of LGBTI people and events. Mark it in your calendar and download the schools toolkit for Year 7 - 11.
3. Book a Minus18 Workshop
Book a Minus18 workshop on LGBTI diversity. Minus18 workshops are run by young people and are a great way to start conversations on how to make schools safer for LGBTI students.
