Support, advocacy, education, and celebration.

Our vision

Our vision is for all rainbow people to thrive in a society that supports, celebrates, and treasures them, and for Aotearoa to be a leader in wellbeing outcomes for our LGBTQIA+ whānau.

Peer Support

Our peer support service is here to help all trans and non-binary people in Waitaha Canterbury, regardless of age. We can help you on your journey of gender recognition, support you with your wellbeing, and connect you with the wider community.


We can help you navigate Waitaha Canterbury's healthcare system and ensure you're getting the care you need. We're also here to help healthcare providers of all kind ensure they have the skills and knowledge necessary to provide best-practice rainbow-competent care to their patients.

Events & Groups

We know how important it is to be connected to your community. Check out our regular rainbow social groups in Ōtautahi Christchurch and across Waitaha Canterbury, or come along to one of our events throughout the year.


Qtopia offers support and professional development in Ōtautahi Christchurch and across te Waipounamu the South Island to anyone looking to better support their LGBTQIA+ rainbow staff, customers, clients, patients, and whānau. Learn more about how we can help you build inclusive, welcoming, and supportive environments.

Thank you

We couldn't do it without your support.
