***‘YC Hertfordshire Services for Young People youth projects and all other face-to-face work is currently suspended following government rules on remaining at home in order to tackle the COVID-19 outbreak.’***

The 'Be Yourself Be Proud' LGBTQ Project is YC Hertfordshire's project in Cheshunt for young people aged 13-17 who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or questioning their sexuality or gender (LGBTQ+). Joining the group will allow you to meet other LGBTQ young people in a safe space. You'll find the meetings informative and fun and the staff supportive to all who attend. We aim to provide a support network and opportunities for young LGBTQ people to socialise and learn new skills. YC Hertfordshire is the new name for Youth Connexions.

The Be Yourself Be Proud LGBTQ project meets every Tuesday from 7pm to 9pm at a location in Cheshunt which will be made available once you contact us. We have a strict confidentiality policy to respect the needs of all involved.

Come along and enjoy meeting other young LGBTQ people in a safe space. We provide information and advice for those who are coming out and those who need a little more help. We also offer emotional support, useful strategies for managing the ups and downs of coming out and finding ways to feel comfortable and confident with your own identity.

You can gain new skills in our practical workshops, discuss LGBTQ issues, fundraise for LGBTQ charities, listen to live music, or take part in arts and crafts, creative writing and cooking. Group members take the lead in deciding what activities and projects the group will do.

It's completely free to attend and no booking is needed. Please contact us for the time and location of the group.

For more details or if you have any questions please get in touch.

All YC Hertfordshire youth work projects and programmes enable young people to learn new skills, increase their knowledge and develop confidence, self-esteem and resilience.
