Living Proud was founded more than 50 years ago by a group of courageous community members who established the first gay and lesbian rights movement in Australia, called the Campaign Against Moral Persecution WA (CAMP WA). While lobbying to decriminalise homosexuality, CAMP WA established a telephone support line, called ‘Phone a Friend’.
‘Phone a Friend’ tapped into a significant unmet support need and led to the establishment of the Homosexual Counselling Service of WA in December 1973, later named the Gay and Lesbian Counselling Service (GLCS). The GLCS continued to provide telephone and other peer-based support, information, and advocacy services.
The name ‘Living Proud’ was originally used as the name of the LGBTI Suicide Prevention Project run by GLCS from 2011 to 2013. The name ‘Living Proud’ was later adopted to reflect the inclusive nature of our organisation and services.
We strive to improve the health and wellbeing of lesbian, gay, bi+, transgender, intersex, queer and other diverse people.
