The Pride March
Feedback about the March last year was that many young people found it overwhelming. It will be busy and loud, so please chat about it with young people in advance. Ear defenders and water may help, as well as giving information about the Youth Space.
The Youth Space 12-5pm on 24th June is a Partnership Event with Edinburgh Council, Canongate Youth, Totally Sound and Reel Youth Media.
The Youth Space is opening earlier to provide an option, so young people not wanting to do the March have somewhere they can go which will be less intense.
The Youth Space will fill up at 2pm when the rest of the March arrives. If staff / teachers are bringing young people, please head to the Youth Space as soon as you can.
LGBTYS are anticipating over 1000 young people visiting the space throughout the day. There will be some quieter spaces available in the building but it may still be overwhelming, so having a chat with young people in advance about what would work for them would be helpful.
The Festival Village at Bristo Square will have music, stalls and activities.
All positive vibes and offers of support are really welcomed, both in advance and on the day.
