This Pride we want all young LGBT+ people to feel supported, loved and to know that they are enough.
Our usual pride celebrations can’t go ahead this year but we are determined to celebrate the LGBT+ community and help young people in Kent find the support available to them. To make this happen we are harnessing the power of the internet to spread the word. If you want to support young LGBT+ people in Kent then please get involved!
All you need to do is to download the video or images below and share across your social media platforms. We have also written some social media posts to help you out too, but feel free to write your own messages if you prefer. Just don’t forget to tag @Porchlight1974 and include https://thebeyouproject.co.uk/ so young people can find out about the support available.
The BeYou Project is a safe space for any young people who identify as LGBT+ or anyone who thinks they might. We run groups for young people to connect with others going through similar experiences and help people feel less alone.

About The BeYou Project
The BeYou Project connects young people in Kent who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, non-binary or are questioning their sexual orientation and / or gender identity.
We offer a safe, welcoming and non-judgemental space where young LGBT+ people can meet to socialise, have fun and help each other.
Porchlight runs this service because young LGBT+ people are disproportionately affected by homelessness.
