Queensland Positive People – QPP

Queensland Positive People

QPP is a peer-based advocacy and service organisation committed to actively promoting self-determination and empowerment for all people living with HIV (PLHIV).

The organisation has grown through peers and allies creating safe and supportive spaces with and for each other – where we support each other to be well-informed; experience health and quality of life free from stigma and discrimination; feel empowered to enjoy increased levels of optimism, confidence and resilience; and play an active role in determining our futures.

Every year and decade, the landscape of HIV changes – new evidence and technologies emerge and more and more people from diverse backgrounds reach out and become involved. As PLHIV and allies, we are incredibly diverse in age, gender, sexuality, culture, ethnicity and religion.

As we explore, learn, and develop – demand for QPP’s services continues to grow.

QPP has transitioned into a multi-disciplinary service provider – including the very welcomed professionalisation of a long history of peer support. QPP’s peer navigators, case managers and peer testers provide support and practical assistance for people living with HIV and HIV/STIs for people at risk of HIV/STIs.

QPP can provide support with:

Social connection
Social and emotional support
HIV support and health navigation for HIV diagnosis, treatment and care.
Practical assistance with accessing medications, clinical services, food, housing and other essential support services including mental health.
Information and support with stigma, discrimination, migration and the law.
Emergency Relief Funding
HIV/STI rapid testing.
QPP works closely with state, national and internal partners to deliver comprehensive and coordinated responses to the needs of people living with HIV and people at risk of HIV/STIs.

QPP is an inclusive organisation and has no political or religious affiliations. Together we can ensure no one has to face HIV alone.

QPP is also an Australian, Incorporated Association and registered Australian Charity for taxation purposes.

Viewer Advice: Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander viewers are advised that QPP’s website and Talking About Treatment series of films may contain images and voices of people who are now deceased.

Brisbane Pride Choir

We formed, as the Brisbane Lesbian and Gay Pride Choir, in 1998. We weren’t a choir at the start but just a group of people who came together for a series of singing workshops funded by a Brisbane City Council grant. The fire was lit with those workshops and just a few months later we performed at the annual Pride Fair Day.

The Choir is a group of gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, intersex and queer-friendly people who come together to sing. We think it’s important to perform in and for our local community.

Through our performances we share with audiences the great value of a diverse, inclusive and accepting society. At events in Brisbane and throughout Queensland we have often connected with people struggling with their own sexuality or identity. As a community choir, it’s a great feeling for us to know that our performances matter.

We are an SATB (soprano, alto, tenor, bass) choir and sing a range of songs and musical styles, including traditional, contemporary and original music. A large part of our repertoire is sung a cappella.

We aim to entertain audiences in the LGBTIQ+ community as well as audiences in the wider Brisbane, national and international community.

Through our performances we share with audiences the great value of a diverse, inclusive and accepting society.

We are always keen to welcome new members.

You do not need to audition to join the choir.

Choir rehearsals are held from 7:00pm to 9:00pm every Tuesday in West End during school term.

Parents and friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG)

Welcome to PFLAG Brisbane

On behalf of the Committee of PFLAG+ I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to our website. The + sign has recently been added because of inclusivity. We believe it’s important for parents to know who have LGBTQIA+ children, you are always welcome at PFLAG+.

PFLAG is an international peer support group that has been operating since the mid 80’s when June Smythe from Perth in WA initiated the first PFLAG group in Australia. Every group in Australia is 100% voluntary, self funded, with no political affiliation and secular. All groups operate at different strengths, depending on regions.

At present the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer or questioning (LGBTIQA+) community is one of the last minority groups in Australia still living with varying forms of discrimination and injustice. Now, it is commonplace for parents to be seen successfully advocating for their children’s rights at all levels of government. Parental advocacy has brought great change for our children’s rights since PFLAG+ began in Australia.

As parents with children who identify as LGBTIQ+ we believe – to enable them to have truly fulfilling lives – it’s important they are able to live their lives honestly and with integrity, without fear of discrimination, ostracism or abuse.

PFLAG+, even though primarily a support group for parents, strives to also support LGBTQIA+ youth who are in fear they may be/or have been abandoned by family. We do this by providing information and referrals for them while they are going through the process of deciding whether to disclose to family. Additionally, we can offer resources for their families that helps them to understand the changes

For those who aren’t accepted by family we want them to know they are welcome and supported by PFLAG+.

Please note we have done our best to be as supportive and inclusive as possible, so if pronouns or terminology is not always correct or at times inconsistent in our resources, please accept our apologies.

Focus Hypnotherapy

The real significance of therapy during hypnosis is that healing and emotional change are experienced while in the hypnotic state. This is when the mind is most open and receptive to suggestions like the ones received during ‘quit smoking hypnosis’ or ‘weight loss hypnosis’. Our clinical hypnosis therapy program in Brisbane, can help with behavioural, habitual or emotional change through hypnosis and can help interrupt old patterns of behaviour and limiting beliefs. This can be used for issues like self-esteem, reducing anxiety, eliminating phobias, pain relief, dealing with the fear of public speaking, and putting an end to habits such as nail-biting. Amongst the most common issues are also weight loss or trying to quit smoking. Hypnosis that is practiced by a qualified hypnotherapist in Brisbane for example, also provides the unique opportunity to access the body’s biological processes which are not normally accessible through normal consciousness. This means hypnosis can actually influence physical symptoms and conditions.

The range of issues people have come to see me for help as a hypnotherapist have included:

Anxiety, self-esteem & confidence
Fears & phobias
Stress relief
Weight loss Hypnosis
Quit Smoking Hypnosis
Alcohol & substance dependency
Control and management of pain
Bed Wetting (enuresis)
Physical symptoms
There have been numerous studies which show that children can be easier to hypnotise than adults and that therapy through hypnosis can be helpful with childhood behavioural and physical issues as identified above.
