World AIDS Day 2017

By LGBTQI, OUTthink

World AIDS Day 2017 World AIDS Day is held on 1 December each year. It raises awareness across the world and in the community about the issues surrounding HIV and AIDS. It is a day for people to show their support for people living with HIV and to commemorate people who have died. Over the past few years, we’ve seen some incredible advancements in the fight against HIV and even steps towards potentially finding a cure. All this is news that is worth getting truly excited about, especially given current estimates see approximately 32 million people globally living with HIV. The fight against HIV and AIDS is not over yet. We have a generation of adults now who have never known a world without the presence of HIV and AIDS. Coupled with the fact that HIV is no longer a death sentence, it seems to be that there has become an increase in the amount of activity that could potentially transmit the virus and an apathy towards the outcome. We need to realise that the fight against HIV and AIDS is not over yet and that we do have the potential, if we all play our part, to eradicate this…

POSITIVE CHANGE Campaign 2017

By LGBTQI, OUTthink

POSITIVE CHANGE Campaign 2017 – Hypnosis To Help!

I’ve had very mixed results over the past two years of running the campaign and it has made me aware of the fact that December can often be a difficult time to promote making a positive change in your life.

POSITIVE CHANGE Campaign 2016

By Hypnotherapy, LGBTQINo Comments

This time last year, I set out to make the last few weeks of the year really count. I was completing my Diploma of Hypnotherapy and felt a strong desire to work on real presenting issues and use the skills I had spent the prior two years learning to help make change in people’s lives. At the same time, I felt that I wanted to give back to the LGBTQIA community, of which I had been a part of for so many years of my life. I came up with my own campaign, ‘Positive Change’. It allowed me to see clients, to offer them assistance and to allow their change to help provide assistance to those people living with HIV. As a result, it allowed me to hand over $450 to the Victorian AIDS Council at the end of the last year, made in memory of Kerrie Le Gore, a wonderful Melbourne entertainer and local legend who had sadly passed away a few weeks prior. This year, I’d like to do it all again. This time, I’d love to be able to get in front of more people, help promote more change and, in turn, be able to offer a…
