LL x Unicorns presents Queer Social

Hello and Welcome Beautiful Humans!

Queer social has wrapped up for 2021 but we will come back in 2022 with new and popular workshops for everyone!

If you’d like to teach with us in 2022, there is a tab below and if you want more information, email us!

Check this short wrap up video for some of the things we got up to 🙂

We wanted to create a space for LGBTQIA+ people to connect outside of party vibes, make new pals and enjoy in the fun of learning new things….

So Laneway Learning and Unicorns teamed up to invent QUEER SOCIAL – a queer workshop and social space for queers, by queers.

Learning new things has so many benefits, from developing new skills to increasing mental wellbeing. And it’s also just fun!

So come and join us for this cute new workshop series and be surrounded by other lovely queer people – you could also meet your new best friend or soul mate! 😉

We will be learning anything and everything – from how to make home-make eco-glitter bath bombs, to money management hot tips and how to crochet a unicorn!

There will also be fun little games to get you mingling and chill times at the end to hang out in our colourful space. 

The workshops are also going to be super cheap thanks to a bunch of legend sponsors like City of Melbourne and Bank Australia – thank you x 100 for being on board to support us queers!

WHO IS BEHIND THIS LITTLE IDEA?

Two humans: Maria – Laneway Learning (she/her) and delsi – Unicorns (she/her).

Laneway Learning and Unicorns, are both community organisations that focus on creating spaces for our community.

We do it out of love and passion for developing safer spaces, with open hearts and all our empathy, commitment and energy.

However, there is only two of us so please be mindful that we might take some time to get back to you.

That workshop was life changing.
Queer Social Attendee (September 2021)

OMG I have missed Unicorns and the community around it. Seeing everyone at Queer Social made me feel like I could get through this pandemic.
Queer Social Attendee (October 2021)

The second the workshop ended, I recommended it to 3 other queer friends. Lockdown has been hell on mental healthy. Counselling and psychiatry offices are booked, their waitlists are closed. This isn't the cure, but let me tell you - I'm having the first good day in months and I owe it all to last nights workshop. Thank you.

These events are fulfilling an overlooked need for queer disabled folk in Melbourne. I appreciate that the topics are fun and uplifting. We need more of this.
