Out Loud Aotearoa

Illustration, type

The #OutLoud project was inspired by #wearebeneficiaries, in response to the Government Inquiry into Mental Health and Addiction. The aim of this project is to share the stories and wishes of the queer, gender diverse, intersex, takatāpui, MVPFAFF or rainbow communities around Aotearoa’s mental health and addiction services.

These communities were asked to write some sentences about their experiences as a queer, gender diverse, intersex or rainbow person in relation to the mental health and addiction services in Aotearoa. Artists were commissioned to draw a picture to go with someone else’s words.
