Their vision is a strong, proud, coherent LGBT+ community of the future that is healthy, safe from abuse, free from prejudice and is making a positive contribution to society. This incredible organisation delivers the UK’s largest LGBT events including Pride Prom and Homoween, which are a testament to their ability to listen to young people’s needs. Their school programme is also having a tremendous impact, offering teachers and wider school personnel training on LGBT+ awareness. This small organisation with just two members of staff and twelve volunteers served an astonishing one thousand young person’s last year alone.
