Youth Pride - lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender youth group on the Isle of Wight

Whether you are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, not sure or confused about your sexuality - itís OK however you see yourself. We offer a friendly non-judgemental environment.

The group aims to empower young people and encourage you to have your say about future events and activities. So far there has been a strong interest in films and music and relationships of course!

There are presently two youth workers who have experience of working in education, youth work, young peopleís counselling and are aware of the stigma, isolation and difficult emotions that young people who are questioning/coming to terms with their sexuality might face.

YouthPride meets each Tuesday from 7.00pm-9.30pm.

YouthPride continues to meet in Newport as it is a central point on the Islandís bus route, there have been some requests to meet in Ryde and a suitable venue is being sought so that more young LGBT people can be included.

We are able to speak with you on Tuesday evenings if you need to talk and we check the phone for voice and text messages twice a week.
