Quick Exit

Thanet – Margate, Ramsgate, Broadstairs

We run meet-ups in your area. These are safe spaces that anyone who thinks they might be LGBT+ can come along to. You can meet new people who share some of the same feelings and experiences as you, socialise and just hang out in a safe and non-judgemental setting. We also run virtual groups for young people in Kent and Medway: find out more.

When? What time? Where?
Every Wednesday
(returning in October)
6.30pm – 8pm Dreamland, Marine Terrace, Margate, CT9 1XJ
You must identify as LGBT+ and be aged 13-18 to attend OUT Margate sessions. If you are under 14, you must be accompanied by an adult.

This group is run in partnership with OUT Margate – you can read more about OUT Margate here. To find out more about this group, or any of our groups across Kent, please email beyou@porchlight.org.uk.

If you’re unable to attend an in-person group, you can still come along to one of our virtual sessions.

Are you aged 18-25?

Join one of our virtual sessions: every Thursday from 5.30 – 6.30pm.

If you are interested in joining, email us at beyou@porchlight.org.uk. From there, someone from our friendly team will get in touch with some questions and details on how to join the group. You won’t have to answer anything you are not comfortable with sharing; we just need to get in touch so we can make sure the groups remain safe spaces for everyone.

Important update about one-to-one support from the BeYou team

Due to high demand, we’ve had to temporarily close our waiting list for one-to-one support. We will continue to provide this service to anyone who is currently receiving it and hope to be able to offer it to more young people again very soon. Our meet-ups are still great places to get advice and support from the BeYou team and they’re always happy to help with whatever you’re going through.
