Opening Closets Mental Health Training

QLives

QLives is a nation wide project telling the stories of individual LGBTI people, the stories heard every day at QLife. Learning about other people’s stories and experiences can really help put a light on those parts of your own life that you may be struggling with, especially when you can see aspects of your own story reflected in what you’re watching. It’s also the most effective way to put a human face to ‘LGBTI’, and to help people outside of our communities to understand that we’re more than a confusing acronym.
