QUEERIOUS MINDS

Queerious Minds is the home of visibility.  The goal of Queerious Minds is to provide a platform for all LGBTQIAP+ Sistergirl and Brotherboy's to share their stories, their experiences and to provide others with a sense of belonging, knowing there are others out there like you and you are NOT alone.  

Queerious Minds aims to share stories, art, information and resources as well as provide sexual health education and information through our website and social media platforms. 

SHAYE AUSTIN 

I kicked off Queerious Minds several years ago as a side project in my role working with young queer people and it has since become a passion project in my free time with the goal of sharing stories.  The main aim of QM was to provide visibility so people could feel a sense of belonging, that they aren't alone, that there is others out in the world doing okay and being their authentic self in the process. 

 

For a bit of background, I use she/her pronouns, I identify as queer and had a messy 'coming out' in high school with very little knowledge of the community or that it even existed.  I truly thought I was the only gay in the village most of the time and I'd hate for anyone else to ever feel that way.

 

I am a clinical nurse in the sexual health and HIV specialty, living in Meanjin currently.  I am also currently doing postgraduate studies in sexual health and HIV and in my [very small] amount of spare time currently, I love doing photography, being in the ocean, exploring nature and spending time with loved ones.

The Queerious Mind

behind it all

Queerious Minds acknowledges that our work takes place on lands under colonialisation and that Sovereignty was never ceded here.  Our headquarters are on Turrbal and Yuggera lands and we pay our respects to elders past, present and emerging and extend this respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
