Australia & New Zealand Tongzhi Rainbow Alliance Inc. (ANTRA) is a community-based not-for-profit organisation incorporated under the NSW Associations Incorporation Act 2009 in December 2018 but we have been presenting ourselves in the young Mandarin- and Cantonese-speaking LGBTQIA+ communities in 2013 in the form of social chat groups on WeChat, LINE, Facebook and various online forums. We have now over 2,000 members and followers throughout WeChat, LINE, Facebook, Weibo and Instagram.
ANTRA is registered with the NSW Fair Trading in the hope of fostering community awareness and growth amongst Mandarin- and Cantonese-speaking LGBTQIA+ self identifying people. We have chosen Sydney to be our base and location of registration, we also represent a wider population of Mandarin- and Cantonese- speaking LGBTQIA+ communities in other Australian states and New Zealand.
ANTRA is founded on the foundation to celebrate and embrace diversity, but most importantly, to become a point-of-contact and support for Mandarin- and Cantonese-speaking LGBTQIA+ community members, particularly migrants, international students and other newly arrived diasporas.
ANTRA aims to:
Establish a social networking platform for Mandarin- and Cantonese-speaking LGBTQIA+ community members;
Advocate for the rights, interests and welfares of Mandarin- and Cantonese-speaking LGBTQIA+ community members; and
Support and guide the health and self-identifying journey of Mandarin- and Cantonese-speaking LGBTQIA+ community members.
