Affinity (Youth Group)

lgbtyouth

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:

Our face to face meetings are suspended due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation. Please sign up above to be provided with details on our upcoming virtual meetings.

Let's keep in touch!
