Like many young queer people in regional South Australia, Levi Button has sometimes found it hard to express themself to friends and family. But a new program in one Riverland town is helping Levi and other LGBTQIA+ youth find their voice, even if it means they aren’t speaking. Riverland Youth Theatre’s There I Am program encourages young queer people to create the best version of themselves through imaginative and colourful costumes. Participants have spent the past five days talking with costume designer Kathryn Sproul about a costume which tells their story and helps them become the person they want to be. Levi said creating this costume helped them understand their emotions and how those emotions make them who they are.
