As LGBT+ youth organisations we are reaching out to
welcome you in because we know the world is not taking
the shape it usually does right now.
It may bring up feelings of fear, worry and a lack of control.
You are not alone in this and we are all facing some
level of uncertainty and challenge.
Some of you may find yourself living in spaces where those are around you are not accepting of your
LGBT+ identity or you are unable to be out. This can feel incredibly challenging and unsettling. Some
of you may have had to move back home from university, some of you will not be in school which
may have been your escape and some of you will not be out and just beginning to explore who you
are, but not feeling sure where to turn. This is, of course, going to add to the anxiety and isolation
that you may already be experiencing. During this time, it is vital that you keep connected to those
who acknowledge, respect and listen to you.
This is where we come in!
Whilst the world adjusts to this new way of life, we want to remind you that we are still here for you,
your community, giving strength and connections, offering events such as digital youth prides,
digital LGBT+ youth groups and one-to-one support.
We have a strong history of uniting against some great challenges, and we can do it again. We
assure you that we are still fighting your corner and we are still here to listen to you and support you.
'At the time of uncertainty, it is more important than ever that we the non-profit sector step forward and support our young community that is isolated at home' Lukasz Konieczka, Executive Director, Mosaic LGBT Youth Centre
