Bit Bent

Bit Bent is a social support group for same-sex attracted and sex and gender diverse young people in the Canberra region. It is an informal group where LGBTIQ+ young people come together in a safe and supported space to meet new friends, talk about their experiences and share information about local events and relevant supports.

Belconnen Bit Bent is hosted by Capital Region Community Services (CRCS) Youth Workers and an LGBTIQ+ community volunteer. The program is held at the Belconnen Youth Centre every Monday evening during the school terms and is divided into the following groups and times.

  • Mondays 5:30pm-6:30pm  (12-19 years)
  • Mondays 7:30pm – 8:30pm (18-25yrs)

*Please note that while the two groups previously joined together between 6:30pm - 7:30pm, the groups will temporarily remain separate to limit the number of attendees in the space and allow for adequate physical distancing measures. The time is instead being used to clean and sterilise the Youth Centre between groups as part of COVID-19 precautions.
