In mid-June Daniel Witthaus visited Mt Isa, the first of five regional, rural and/or remote communities that he’ll visit as part of LGBTI work by the National Institute for Challenging Homophobia Education (NICHE). ┬áThis followed a Brisbane launch of NICHE at Queensland Association of Healthy Communities on the way through – attended by 17 enthusiastic locals.

Returning after his first visit in 2013, local community members, especially PFLAG made him feel welcome as he completed a busy week of media (inc. the ABC), training, school visits, guest speaking and story collecting from locals.  He even got to have a cuppa with the Mayor of Mt Isa.

Stay tuned for more Mt Isa news.
