As part of the National Institute for Challenging Homophobia Education’s tour of regional, rural and remote Australia, Daniel will travel to Bunbury WA for one week of challenging homophobia.
Thanks to the invitation and ongoing efforts of the Uniting Care West ‘True Colours’ project, Daniel Witthaus will spend the week starting 21st October with locals, working with students in local schools and working with teachers and health professionals.
Bunbury’s Helen Robinson (True Colours): “The Safer Schools Project are really looking forward to NICHE coming to Bunbury as we are well that homophobia is still experienced by our young people in schools and the wider community of Bunbury. Daniel’s knowledge and expertise would be harnessed through school visits and workshops, several opportunities to ‘have a cuppa’ with the community. We are also working with the Equal Opportunities Commission to host an event in Perth to announce the NICHE Tour. We are hoping that Daniel can provide the extra momentum for our program to really take hold in Bunbury and create further awareness of the need for safer schools.”
