Allsorts Youth Project to host Children, Young People and Families Day

Besi Besemar January 19, 2013


Young People’s Voices, the LGBT youth campaigning and engagement project at Allsorts Youth Project, will be hosting an LGBT Children Young People and Families Day on February 5, during the B.Right.On festival during LGBT History Month.

LGBT Children Young People’s and Families Day will be the first major event of its kind to celebrate LGBT youth identity and community. Togetherness will be the theme of the day, uniting LGBT children, young people and their families.

The day will involve a Tea Party for invited practitioners, followed by a LGBT Youth Prom.

The focus of the day will be to promote positive images of LGBT young people as part of a two years digital and social media campaign Allsorts have been running.

Stephen Murtagh, Co-President of Allsorts said:

“Families are important for everyone, and at Allsorts we wanted to have a spectacular day to celebrate the importance of LGBT children, young people and their families. By raising awareness, we hope to inspire positive change and representation.”

Lucas Abedecain, Co-President of Allsorts, added:

“Having such a supportive family, the value of being comfortable in your gender identity or sexual orientation is such a positive step. I hope others will be motivated to see how supporting relationships and families can make everyone’s lives better and celebrate their own families.”
