About us

#StrongSafeFabulous was developed by Prosper (Project Australia) in partnership with Rainbow Families NSW as an initiative to support the prevention of domestic & family violence, and child abuse in LGBTIQA+ families. We believe that all families have a right to live a life free from violence and that the whole community can take action to change the attitudes and social norms that lead to violence. #StrongSafeFabulous is informed by Our Watch’s Change the Story, the Australian national prevention of violence against women framework, and Rainbow Health Victoria’s Pride In Prevention.

We affirm and support the Darlington Statement.

The project is funded by the Australian Government Department of Social Services.

The mission of Rainbow Families is to build a community which fosters resiliency by connecting, supporting and empowering LGBTQ+ families.

What do we do?

We provide support and resources to members of the LGBTQ+ community so that they and their families can live their best and most colourful lives. We host events that connect LGBTQ+ families, particularly those that are feeling isolated because of social pressures, financial difficulty or where they live. We advocate on behalf of our community and are a strong and consistent voice for NSW LGBTQ+ families to address discrimination, raise awareness and promote acceptance. We collaborate with similar organisations from other states to push for change across the nation.
