Currently being established, Zoe Belle Gender Centre (ZBGC) will be a centre to support and improve the health and wellbeing of Victoria's sex and gender diverse population.
Sex and gender diverse people (that is, transgender, transsexual and other gender diverse people) are among some of the most disadvantaged members of the Victorian community. This segment of the population experiences disproportionately high rates of social isolation, unemployment and suicide compared to many other members of the wider community.
We believe that more needs to be done to improve the health and wellbeing of sex and gender diverse people in Victoria. Establishing and funding a community driven and controlled gender centre would be a sensitive and proactive response to this problem.
How will the funds be used
ZBGC's long-term goal is to establish a permanent physical space for sex and gender diverse people in Victoria.
We are continuing to progress this goal alongside our vitally important work of providing services to the community now.
Your donation will help us to:
- Provide support, information and referrals
- Run events, workshops and campaigns
- Advocate and educate about issues of gender diversity
- Establish a physical gender centre - one that will host groups and services that are complementary to our mission
- Improve the healthcare of trans* and gender variant people.
All donations made through this web page are made to Transgender Victoria (ABN 6473 6020 809) and are tax deductible. All donations will be used solely for ZBGC to establish a gender centre in Melbourne, Victoria and associated activities.
