q-topia is a social support network for *queer youth (or youth who are questioning their sexual identity) in the Canterbury region aged 14-25. We run regular social events and aim to have a lot of fun. We meet weekly, some of our events include going to cafés, movies, picnics, ten pin bowling, go-kart racing, watching DVDs or simply hanging out.
q-topia provides a social support group for queer youth that affirms and appreciates the diverse qualities of participants. By providing a safe and interesting space for queer youth to meet others, q-topia aims to provide an environment where those who attend the group can safely explore issues and be supported in having pride in who they are.
q-topia is a ‘queer’ play on the word Utopia. Utopia is an imaginary place where everything is perfect. Well, that’s what we’re aiming for!
