your unique identity is a superpower
use it to hit your peak performance

What is LGBTQ+ Apex

LGBTQ+ Apex was formally LGBTQ+ Wellness, a social initiative set up by James Kearslake post-lockdown to bring wellbeing, mental health resources, and fitness to LGBTQ+ people.

With mental health conditions and suicide rates significantly higher in the LGBTQ+ community than the national average, creating resources for our community to safely explore their identity remains a critical need.

Being LGBTQ+ is in fact a superpower’ providing us with a unique view of the world that can only be understood when you are in the community. 

However, due to the deep societal conditioning forced upon us, most LGBTQ+ people see their identity as their block. It is this block that causes deep feelings of disillusion, emptiness, and low self worth.

Taking all that we learned from LGBTQ+ Wellness, we will be building out a program that teaches LGBTQ+ people how to move into their power.

LGBTQ+ Apex will be helping people achieve their peak performance, even when society tells them otherwise.

All current content remains legacy content from LGBTQ+ Wellness, focusing more on mental health conditions, common issues in the community like drug and sex addiction, and resources for protecting your sexual health.

The resources remain just as important today as when they were written after lockdown and will remain a part of the LGBTQ+ Apex program.

Expect LGBTQ+ Apex to launch in the summer of 2024.
