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.



BAME: Black, Asian and Minoritised Ethnicities

LGBT+: Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans (plus other related identities)

The BAME LGBT+ Allies training aims to equip BAME youth, community and faith workers with the confidence, information and resources to start to make BAME and faith spaces more LGBT+ inclusive.

Some BAME and faith communities can find the topic of gender, sexuality, or LGBT+ identities, a challenging area to explore. There can be a lot of silence on such topics in communities, coupled with the pressure of heterosexual expectations for young people to fulfil (such as the importance of having a family and marriage) can lead to LGBT+ young people within BAME and faith communities to fear and feel unable to be ‘out’ or full selves within these spaces.

The BAME LGBT+ Allies training provides an open and non-judgemental learning space for youth, community and faith leaders to reflect on community attitudes towards LGBT+ identities, identify the roots to anti-LGBT+ attitudes and explore ways they can be more visible as supportive LGBT+ allies within these spaces.

This training is for anyone who identifies as BAME and is:

  • A youth worker or who works with young people in some capacity
  • A community worker
  • A faith leader
