The Q42 Project queer culture meets wellbeing peer support in a weekly group for LGBTQ+ people aged 13-18.
With a focus on emotional health and wellbeing, the Q42 Project is a safe and social space for LGBTQ+ young people to: explore and express their LGBTQ+ identities; work on creative projects and activities; create awareness and advocacy outreach campaigns; go on trips and film screenings; and collaborate with other Manchester based organisations (including BBC, Gaydio and Royal Exchange Theatre).
The LGBT group meets every Wednesday from 4:30-6:30pm (during lockdown, we’re online 5-6pm).
As part of the Q42 Project, www.q42.org.uk is an online space created by LGBTQ+ young people for LGBTQ+ young people. There’s loads of information about a whole range of things that matter to LGBTQ+ young people on this site. The Q42 Producers is an exciting opportunity for any LGBTQ+ people aged 13-25 in Greater Manchester to create content for the Q42 website, blog, social media, podcast and YouTube channel! It is our aim to empower the voices of local young LGBTQ+ young people, and give them a platform to be heard. You can follow us on our social media channels below to keep updated:
