The Adelaide Boyz (Thereinafter called “Boyz or Boyz group”)
for Men only, 18 to around 35 years (when joining)
Boyz is a very multicultural-oriented social group run by PEACE Multicultural Services, Relationships Australia SA (RASA). It is for gay and bisexual men who are currently living in, or moving to, Adelaide. Over the past months, Boyz has been creating a stronger base that represents members from different cultures and ethnic backgrounds, such as migrants, overseas students, etc. Today, it still continues to grow steadily.
Boyz aims to:
- Build social connection between members in a safer and welcoming space
- Provide regular themed meetup events (once a month, at this stage)
- Always do its best to help every member feel connected at each meetup event (So, if you are new, don’t be shy!)
- Keep its strong focus on growing multiculturalism due to limited support groups of this type in SA (Say, if you're 40, but feel like wanting to be a part of Boyz, you’re encouraged to contact Boyz coordinator. There are always opportunities!)
Ben currently takes care of both Boyz & UNIDOS. Ben used to be an international student from China and is currently employed by RASA as a peer support worker.
(Please be aware that Ben attends to Boyz group 2 days a week - normally Thursdays & Fridays, unless days get swapped due to a changing weekly work schedule. Hence, there may be a delay in response if you send a message, an email or a request. Apology if this is the case.)

UNIDOS offers private supportive chat via Facebook messages on a 1 to 1 basis. UNIDOS also has a Facebook group (if you wish to join and be a member to receive regular Facebook posts).
