Join Reading’s LGBT+ Youth Group, offering a safe place for young LGBT people to come together.

Affinity is Reading’s LGBT+ Youth Group, that runs weekly at Support U in Reading’s Town Centre Designed for ages 13 – 19, the group is a relaxed, safe space for young LGBT+ to meet each other and discuss issues which are affecting them.
