QNews has had a few calls already asking for help and ideas, so we are runiing a billiting program. Most other GLBTIQ organmisations are closed or on reduced staff at this time so we are trying our hardest to help people but need your help please!

If you have been flooded tell us what happened.  We will share it with the rest of the world so people can understand what is happening.  It is always good to get it off your chest.  Just email us via flood@qnews.com.au

If you are interstae … yes we need your help.  People need to know they are supported and your messages of support are a great idea.  Please email us with your thoughts and we will try and publish as many as possible.  flood@qnews.com.au
