Stonewall Cymru Youth pride events

This year Stonewall will be hosting six Youth Pride events which are open to anyone aged between 16 and 21.

We hold Youth Prides across the UK. This is the page for Cardiff Youth Pride. For information on the five others we will be going to, please click here.

What is Youth Pride?

Our Youth Pride events are a chance for participants to meet other young people and Stonewall Cymru staff, as well as march in some amazing pride parades.

In 2018 Stonewall will take up to 315 young people to some of the UK's biggest celebrations of LGBTQ+ communities, culture and activism.

How much does it cost?

  • Attending a Stonewall Youth Pride event is free
  • We cover all travel costs and provide food and refreshments

What happens at the Youth Pride events?

We meet at a location close to the parade route, welcome everyone, hand out free Stonewall Cymru t-shirts and light brunch before marching together in the parade with hundreds of other community groups and organisations. This year we are also hosting a panel discussion with some of our Young Campaigners from Wales, who will talk about the programme and how you can get involved.

Remember, Stonewall Cymru covers your travel costs and provides free brunch.

Can I attend with my friends?

Of course! However, your friends must also be aged 16 - 21 and they will need to submit their own application. Please note, we cannot guarantee that everyone who applies will be offered a space.

If you would like to register as a youth group, please email cymru@stonewallcymru.org.uk

What if I want to come on my own and won't know anyone else there?

Absolutely no problem. Many people come to these events on their own and it’s a great chance to meet new people. We'll introduce you to each other and Stonewall staff will be there to chat at the event and during the Pride parade.

How do I get there?

If your application is successful, we'll email you all the details about the event, including the meeting time and place. We'll book your train tickets in advance or you can book your own and claim your money back after the event.

How old do you have to be to apply for a space?

These events are open to people who are aged 16 - 21 on the day of the event. If you're under 18 we will require a signed consent form from your parent or legal guardian.
