Proud to be part of the story

It is 50 years since the first UK Pride. Despite a lot of progress, young people tell us that it is still tough to be LGBTI in Scotland in 2022. We don’t think that’s good enough and we need your help to change that story.

Our dream is for Scotland to become the most inclusive place in the world for LGBTI young people to reach their full, fabulous potential.

This summer for Pride, we are asking for your help to make that dream a reality by supporting our life changing work and becoming part of our story.

  • “Without LGBT Youth Scotland I am not sure I’d still be around. The support, signposting and the life skills that they have taught me have saved me countless times.”

Arden, former young person and current volunteer

We support thousands of incredible young people like Arden every year and we are so proud to be part of their story. We know not everyone has the support they deserve. Whatever your own story, join us and together we can show them how proud we are to be part of theirs.
