A GAY youth group has been launched in Yate after 17 years of campaigning.
The town’s Armadillo youth café hosts monthly sessions for anyone aged 14-19 who is LGBTQ - lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans or questioning. Any young LGBTQ person can call in on the last Sunday of the month from 7pm-9pm for advice, support or information or to meet other young people. Berkeley Wilde, director of the Diversity Trust, said: “We are really pleased to be working with the Armadillo to set up the LGBTQ youth cafe. “We have been working in South Gloucestershire over the past couple of years on engaging with the LGBTQ community and have found that young people want somewhere local they can go to meet up and get support.” He said establishing the group had been made possible through support from South Gloucestershire Council.
