Supporting growth and sustainability of trans and gender diverse peer support across Victoria. Supported by the Victorian Government.
For the safety and wellbeing of our community, volunteers, and staff, TGV has made the difficult decision to withdraw from presenting our stall during Midsumma Carnival this weekend (where we would usually be sharing a stall with other trans and gender diverse organisations alongside our friends from Seahorse Victoria).
We acknowledge the disappointment this announcement may bring, as we know that Midsumma Carnival is an important event for many in our communities. After carefully reviewing the evolving COVID-19 situation in Victoria over recent weeks, this decision has been made with the safety of our community at its core (particularly those vulnerable or at high risk).
We thank everyone in our community for their ongoing support, strength, and compassion for one another through this difficult time.
If you are going along to Midsumma Carnival as an attendee, we encourage you to think of ways to make the experience safer for you and those around you - such as wearing a mask, regularly sanitising your hands, and distancing where possible.
