Launching soon: The Pillar Podcast! Here's an introduction to the project, run in collaboration with Wave, by some of the young people involved along the way:
We chose to do this podcast to help educate people about some of our struggles, facts and experiences. Our goal is to build inclusivity and acceptance across Highland.
Creating a podcast has been a shared goal for members of the group for a while, and making it has been a whirlwind of emotions. While we love hanging out together, making each episode has brought the group closer together with a united purpose.
We hope the podcast is both educational and entertaining. Please know, if you are a young person listening anywhere in Highland, you are not alone and are always welcome to join us. By listening, we hope you feel like part of Pillar already.
This podcast has been made in collaboration with LGBT Youth Scotland's Pillar Group and Waverley Care's Wave project, with funding from Year of Young People National Lottery Fund (Heritage Lottery).
All members were aged between 13-21 at the time of recording, and all views expressed are those of the young people involved. We hope you enjoy listening, and remember to tune into future episodes!
