Your donations help us run activities such as our Pride Camp:

Pride Camp started in 2019 and is a 2-night camp for LGBTIQ+ teens and allies. Here's a quote from a parent of one of the 2019 campers that sums up Pride Camp pretty well:

"The happiness and confidence that I saw in [my child] during and after the camp was radiating.  I could tell without even talking to [them] that [they] felt safe and like [they] were able to just be [their] true self at camp without the weight of the world that [they] sometimes carry on [their] shoulders.  Being able, as a parent of a transgender child, to be able to come into camp and see the kids interacting together and to see the bond they had all made in such a short period of time, was heart-warming.  They had only met 2 days ago but I could tell there would be some ongoing friendships that hopefully with last for years to come.  These kids found something in each other that maybe made them feel a little less isolated in a world that they sometimes feel that they do not fit into.  I loved being able to see the camp and meet the amazing people that made this camp happen and that gave my child such an amazing experience.  I could see the bond not only with the kids but also between them and the staff.

I feel the benefits of attending this camp has been massive for [my child] and for us too. To see [them] relaxed and happy was just great and to see this new-found confidence in [themself] is fantastic.

I cannot express my thanks enough for all those who worked so hard to make it happen."
