Equality Work with Young Women

Out and About Project

Description:

Research consistently highlights the marginalisation, isolation and sense of invisibility experienced by LGB young women. Out & About, a personal development programme for young women aged 16 - 25 years who identify as other than straight, seeks to engage those marginalised as a result of their age, gender and sexuality. The group meets for a couple of hours each week in Belfast and provides a safe social space where young women can meet up with others, talk about the issues that matter to them as well as lobby and campaign to effect change for other young women.
An Out & About mentoring programme is also available to support young women who cannot attend the group due to living further away or being too young to attend the group.
See the 'Watch on YouTube' section for links to some of the film projects that the group has been involved in in recent years.
