What is GASP?

The GASP project is Geelong’s safe and inclusive space for young people aged between 12-25.

We provide a range of services and support to ensure that the strength and diversity of LGBTIQA+ young people are valued, celebrated and affirmed in the Geelong region.


GASP is: A place to make new friends

Are you lesbian, gay, bisexual, intersex, transgender, gender diverse, or just not sure? GASP offers a number of social and support groups for people aged 12-25, which meet in central Geelong. We talk about our experiences, have fun, and get information and advice.

If you are interested in joining a GASP group please phone 5272 6120 and ask to speak to a GASP project worker. We are available Monday to Friday 9am-5pm.

"GASP is a great way to meet other people, get support and get inspired!"


GASP is: A place for support

If you need to talk and be heard, we offer one-on-one counselling. For more information, please contact us.

We're also available for a confidential chat if you think you are experiencing homophobia, biphobia, intersexphobia or transphobia. 


GASP is: Supporting the community

We offer a range of services for schools and organisations in the Geelong region, including:

  • Training for staff on the health and well being of LGBTIQA+ young people;

  • Support for schools around gender and sexuality, and how to develop a whole-school approach to creating a safe, respectful, and inclusive learning environment;

  • Secondary consultation;

  • Training for service providers to help build capacity and develop strategies for LGBTIQA+ inclusive practice.
