Affinity (Youth Group)


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.

You’ll meet Angela, Amy and Lorna who help look after our schools and young people. They’re not there to be a teacher, but to help if you have any questions or concerns!

We don’t lead the conversations, you do – you can talk about pretty much anything you want! You can always talk to us privately and confidentially if you prefer.

No. We put on regular activities in the session, but it’s up to you whether you’d like to take part.

No – just as long as a responsible adult knows where you are when visiting us!

Our next events are scheduled for:

Marlow FM Exclusive!

Next week I am thrilled be speaking to Tia, an exclusive interview for Mid-Morning Matters for Marlow FM 97.5. Tia has been cross dressing for many years and now wants to share this exclusive story with me on Marlow FM next Tuesday 19th November. Mid Morning Matters show starts at 930am, Tia joins me at 10am-12pm. I really hope you can tune in and be part of this show.

I have been speaking to cross dressers for the last few months and I can’t wait to speak to Tia and also my amazing panel for the morning; Lorna McArdle from Support U, Celebrity make-up artist Lorraine Milligan and my resident Psychotherapist Fiona Austin will be on the phone as will Paul Heaton from BornTransTalk. We are going to dig deep and share important messages to the many out there who are hiding behind their story.

Since I started researching Cross Dressing I have been overwhelmed by the people (some I know) who have stepped forward to confidentially tell me they cross dress. Isn’t it sad that many feel trapped, unable to be liberated by their choice of clothes because some of society makes it awkward! Eddie Izzard makes a living out of being a cross dresser, so why is it taboo for the many others?

I hope you can join my show and my panel on the fabulous Marlow FM 97.5 next Tuesday.

You can listen live through the website,, you can ask Alexa or Siri to play Marlow FM or you can tune in to 97.5fm.

I would love for you to be part of my show, send in questions, call in, speak to my guests and genuinely get involved because we all matter, no one should feel scared to live their life.
