Sean and Brynn from the Gender Connect Country SA team recently attended the Port Pirie Picnic in the Park to make some connections with the local community and services at large.
Overall it was a great day, and it makes it very heart-warming to be able to reach out directly to families with young trans and gender diverse community members and let them know that our Gender Connect Country SA service exists for both them and their young person.
Brynn used to live in Port Pirie as a child, and there is no way she could have ever imagined an event like this taking place, let alone the fact there may be others who were going through the same things he was.
These events are important. They let us know that there are places and people out there that are accepting and affirming, and they let us know that we are not completely alone.
