The Be You Project

The BeYou Project connects young people in Kent and Medway who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, non-binary or are questioning their sexual orientation and / or gender identity.


We offer a safe, welcoming and non-judgemental space where young LGBT+ people can meet to socialise, have fun and help each other.
