Coronavirus (COVID-19) Statement

The Proud Trust is now operating digitally, as we make significant changes to how we operate in this time of international concern.

All youth groups and 1-1s (face-to-face contact) are not running in their usual venues and are being delivered virtually instead.

Our LGBT+ Centre is closed, if you want to get in touch, contact us at

Our face to face training is also postponed, but some courses have moved virtual. Information on upcoming virtual training, can be found here.

Youth workers will be sending out Google Hangout links for our group work and 1-1 support. Please contact us if you have any questions.

We are still here for you and all LGBT+ young people.

Please share this with young people or colleagues where relevant.


Faith And Culture

Here we explore people’s experiences of navigating LGBT+ identities along with ethnicity, religious/faith and cultural identities. We aren’t one dimensional people, there are lots of different wonderful things that make us whole and sometimes it can be challenging to find spaces and people to explore this with. 

Exploring and navigating our identities can be tricky. Finding out where we fit in the world can be a long and winding journey, with ups, downs, wrong turns and even U-turns. Lots of things impact our journeys, sometimes it’s our own thoughts about who we are, sometimes it’s thoughts from others, and for some of us our culture, religion, faith and belief can present great comforts, but also great challenges to our identities too. 

We created Faith In Yourself (below) to have somewhere to hold young people’s stories, journeys and questions. It’s also somewhere to explore advice in navigating identity journeys as people who are LGBT+ and have religion, faith or belief. Faith In Yourself and these pages we hope, will provide some reassurance and perhaps some answers to questions you may have been asking yourselves, and the world.

Quotes you read have come from people of all ages who have religion, faith and belief. Most of these people are LGBT+ and some are LGBT+ allies!
