Our Events

Our peer led social support group meet on the third Sunday of each month at the Bendigo Neighbourhood Hub from 1pm-3pm. These social gatherings are for all ages and we welcome allies to join with us.

The key priorities of our group are for participants to feel; safe, supported, welcome and included.

Trans Day of Remembrance is November 20.
It is a day to remember the lives lost to transphobic violence and draw attention to the continued violence toward trans people.
Our friends at La Trobe University are putting on an event to honour this day and provide an opportunity for reflection, healing and hope for a safer future for trans people.
We invite you to join us from 7pm at La Trobe Uni. Bookings essential at this link

Trans, Gender Diverse and Allies Clothing Swap
4th December 2021

Bendigo Town Hall

A Pop Up Pride day in Bendigo includes musicians, drag performers, Gay Stuff Markets, Trans Clothing Swap at the Town Hall, short films from Bendigo Queer Film Festival, reading nook and LGBTQIA+ literature display at the Bendigo Library, history exhibition, headspace diversity group art exhibition, AIDS Quilt display from Thorne Harbour Country and community stalls.

Clothing swaps are a place to come together and celebrate the full diversity and opportunities of self expression through fashion. They are also an opportunity to socialise and explore gender expression in a safe, supportive and inclusive environment. The clothing swap events are free to enter and all items are free to take. This is due to the ongoing support by the general public who continue to donate items of clothing, shoes and accessories.

If you have items to donate to the clothing swap, please bring them with you to the event or contact tgdbendigo@gmail.com to arrange collection.
Accepted donations include: GOOD CONDITION clothing, shoes, jewellery, hats, accessories and plastic coat hangers.
