Youth Pride MCR is a project by Manchester Pride which aims to improve the lives of LGBTQ+ young people and their allies.
We facilitate fun and educational workshops in safe and accessible spaces, providing young queer people with opportunities to have fun and connect with like-minded individuals across the city.
Youth Pride hosts regular sessions, where young people aged 14-18 can develop new and existing skills, make new friends and explore diverse identities in a safe, supportive and nourishing environment.
Are you 14-18? We have an exciting opportunity for all young LGBTQ+ people and their allies!
If you want to meet more LGBTQ+ people and their allies, have fun, win prizes and loads more, then get involved with our free workshops!
We’re holding one online workshop
a month where you can get involved with content creation for our Youth Pride Instagram account, creating an online Zine and more, plus you'll make loads of new friends and hang out with other LGBTQ+ young people, and their allies, across the city.
Each workshop will last for one hour and there will be games, quizzes, youth-led projects and special guests.
Check out @youthpride_mcr on Instagram for a look at what we get up to!
Workshops will be led by the Manchester Pride Engagement Team who are fully trained and have lots of experience working with young people - they're also nice and fun!
Some of the activities and projects will happen across more than one workshop so it's good to keep coming back and spend more time with your new Youth Pride Pals.
There’s so much going on, but don’t just believe us - here’s what some people have already said about Youth Pride MCR Workshops:“What I enjoy most about the workshops is getting to spend time with amazing people.”“I like meeting new people and feeling included, coming from a small village there isn’t many lgbt+ people or activities. Youth pride has helped me make new friendsand feel less lonely.”“It’s been an amazing experience and has made me come out of my shell a lot! Alex and Jana have given me lots of confidence to be who I want to be and not be ashamed.”
