Allsorts Youth Project will be holding The Young Volunteers Awards Ceremony 2012 on Tuesday 31st July , 6.30-8.30pm, at the Light House Art Galley. The event is to celebrate the work and achievements of the young volunteers of the campaigning and engagement project ‘Young People’s Voice’ (YPV).

They will also be launching ‘LGBT Children Young People’s and Families Day’ due to take place in February next year, a major event to celebrate LGBT youth identity and community. ‘Togetherness’ will be the theme of the day and will involve a ‘gathering’ for community members with presentations, performances, activities throughout the day and evening. More details will be announced by the YPV Campaigns Action Group Representatives at the ceremony.

The event will also feature an exhibition of images created by the Allsorts young people from their campaign: ‘Global Voices: LGBT Youth Against Homophobic, Biphobic and Transphobic bullying in schools’.

James, YPV Campaigns Action Group Representative, said: “In recent years there has been a significant rise of awareness due to internet-based campaigns highlighting LGBT youth related issues. As a response we are putting on this event to celebrate LGBT youth positive images. We feel this is important to showcase what we have achieved in our campaigning efforts to date and future work.”
