What is Youth Pride?
Our Youth Pride events are a chance for participants to meet other young people and Stonewall staff, as well as hear from role models from the LGBTQ+ community and march in some amazing pride parades!
How much does it cost?
- Attending a Stonewall Youth Pride event is free
- We cover all travel costs and provide food and refreshments
What happens at the Youth Pride events?
We meet at a location close to the parade route, welcome everyone, hand out free Stonewall t-shirts and lunch before marching together in the parade with hundreds of other community groups and organisations. Remember, Stonewall covers your travel costs and provides free lunch.
Please note that at UK Black Pride there is no parade march but there is an afternoon of festival activity in Haggerston Park.
Can I attend with my friends?
Of course! However, your friens will need to submit their own application. Please note, we cannot guarantee that everyone who applies will be offered a space.
What if I want to come on my own and won't know anyone else there?
Absolutely no problem. Many people come to these events on their own and it’s a great chance to meet new people! We'll introduce you to each other and Stonewall staff will be there to chat at the event and during the Pride parade.
How do I get there?
If your application is successful, we'll email you all the details about the event, including the meeting time and place. We'll book your train tickets in advance or you can book your own and claim your money back after the event.
How old do you have to be to apply for a space?
These events are open to people who are aged 16 - 21 on the day of the event (16 - 25 for UK Black Pride). If you're under 18 we will require a signed consent form from your parent or legal guardian.
