Out and Proud is Cardiff’s longest running LGBT youth group. Set up in 2013, we offer support, activities and a relaxed social space for LGBT young people in Cardiff and the surrounding areas.
Our members come from across the South Wales area, including Cardiff, the Vale of Glamorgan and Rhondda Cynon Taf. If you are LGBT, or questioning, we want you to come join us!
“For me the group means that I can be myself instead of being someone I pretend I’m not”
“The group to me is a support network where we all have fun and have become great friends”
“The group is about networking and meeting a like minded group of lifelong friends”
We meet every Tuesday, and for the most part we just hang out. There is a pool table, cards, board games, and space to just sit and chat.
There is also the option nearly ever week to take part in fun activities that our members have asked us to organise.
We have already done:
This makes up a big part of what we do.
We will arrange for speakers to come in and talk to our members about topics that interest them, so far including sexual health, basic first aid (pictured) and mental health.
We have a C-Card provider on site, and every evening there is time for one-on-one support.
