A bunch of our Staff, Volunteers and Breakout Young people got the chance to take part in the Pride Youth Games last week in Manchester. This was all made possible thanks to Red Funnel and the NHS for covering the transportation costs for the event.

Pride Youth Games is a residential weekend of activities for LGBT+ young people. PYG provides a unique opportunity for LGBT+ young people to get together, have fun and experience sport and activity in a safe and inclusive environment. It is a joint initiative of Pride Sports, LEAP Sports Scotland and LGBT Sport Cymru.
PYG brings diverse young LGBT+ people together at a time when they are vulnerable to social isolation and exclusion, and when they are developing confidence in their own identities following, often hostile, school experiences of sport and physical education. It provides a space where ALL LGBT+ young people, trans, non-binary, intersex and queer, can reclaim autonomy across a range of sports spaces.
