SGLBT- Young LGBTQ People in Scarborough

Location: York and North Yorkshire

Gender: All Genders

Age Range: Under 25

The group meets fortnightly in a safe central Scarborough location to provide socialising and support for LGB&TQ people under the age of 25. The sessions normally start at 6pm and end at 8pm but sometimes there are group trips and residentials too.

Sessions have included costume making for Scarborough Pride, a movie night, sexual rights session, a beach party, food and non-alcoholic cocktails night, a Halloween party, a trip to Leeds LGB&T Pride, a residential in the Dales and more.

The group members are helping to steer the way the youth group develops and grows with a Yorkshire MESMAC worker supporting them. In the future months they have sexual health sessions planned including the development of resources to benefit other young people in the coast and moors areas. Also the group have received some money because of their work evaluating some youth work resources and are planning a group trip or meal.

Young people from across the Scarborough, Whitby and Ryedale areas are very welcome to join the group, we can even help with travel expenses if it’s difficult to get to the group.
