Pride Youth Games 2020
28th November 2019
Pride Youth Games is BACK!!!
Pride Youth Games (PYG) is taking place in Scotland this year! It will be a residential weekend of activities held in Largs during August in 2020. PYG is an opportunity like no other where LGBT+ young people can come together and experience sport and activities in a fun, safe and inclusive environment. PYG is a joint initiative of LEAP Sports Scotland, Pride Sports and LGBT Sport Cymru. Young LGBT+ people face hardships including family rejection, homelessness, mental health issues and experiences of anti LGBT+ bullying and violence.
PYG aims to allow LGBT+ youth groups from throughout the UK to come together and reconnect with sport and the benefits it brings. PYG allows for diverse young LGBT+ to engage in sport at a time when they may be vulnerable to social isolation and exclusion. Coming together and engaging in sport can help them to develop confidence and their own identities in a safe space.
PYG provides a space where ALL LGBT+ young people, trans, non-binary, intersex and queer, can reclaim autonomy and connect across a range of sports spaces.
Fun sports, friends, accommodation and food provided!
More information will be sent out in the coming months, so please spread the word. Sign up information for England and Scotland will be available in the New Year!
Pride Youth Games have more fun.
