We’ve had a great year, thanks to you.

Dear Friends

This year we are helping 21 young LGBTIQ people achieve their educational dreams, all around Australia.  Through our scholarship and mentoring program we’re transforming lives, and we have you to thank for it.

“Living within a boarding school comprised of rural students, I have faced homophobic and prejudiced remarks on a daily basis.  On each of these accounts I have stood up to them to try and reveal the discriminatory and isolating nature of their words…. “

“I identify as a gay man. Coming from an Asian family background means that my sexuality has created significant barriers between myself and the other members in my family.”

“In my day-to-day life, I suffer marginalisation and challenges because of my gender. I live with a certain level of fear when out in public. Verbal abuse is a weekly event, I have had garbage thrown at me from cars, been chased, spat on and roughed up.”

Your generosity has allowed us to help 45 Scholars like these in the last four years, providing close to $200,000 in grants.

Too many LGBTIQ youth are still marginalised and vulnerable.  Next year we want to ensure more of these talented, brave and inspiring young people have a chance to reach their full potential.

With 30 June looming, you have four more days to provide a tax-deductible donation.

Please, be generous and give the next generation of LGBTIQ leaders a chance.  It takes less that 5 minutes.

With gratitude,
The Pinnacle Team, all of whom are volunteers.
