Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, most community groups are currently not meeting. To protect yourself and others, avoid all unnecessary contact with other people and follow all advice issued by the Australian Department of Health via their website. Conditions are changing constantly, so check back periodically for the latest advice.

If you are feeling socially isolated, see the Services and COVID-19 pages on this website for people you can contact. Various phone and online services such as Q Life and Lifeline are still operating as usual, and services like Bfriend are still available via phone and email to offer support to LGBTIQA+ South Australians.
