Youth events in July
July is a jam-packed month of Pride events!
Trans Pride Brighton, Saturday 21st of July 2018
Saturday 21st July 2018
What - GI will be going to Trans Pride in Brighton as a group. Our groups from Leeds and Bristol will also be joining us! There is an option to travel there and back with us, or if you are older or have parental consent, you can travel down from London with us and do your own thing at the end of the day.
Meeting Location LONDON BLACKFRIARS TRAIN STATION
Meeting point London BLACKFRIARS Station – inside main entrance by WHSmith
Time 9.30 – 9.45am to sign in
Train leaves at 9:59am, if you are late there is a train at 10:09am which 2 volunteers will wait for you to get on, but after that we cannot wait. You can find us in Brighton if you come later than that.
17:26 train from Brighton, arriving to London Blackfriars at 18:41. If we miss that train for whatever reason, we will get the next direct train at 17.58 which arrives at London Blackfriars at 19:11.
Note on schedule
There is a March that leaves from Marlborough Place at midday and gets to the park for 1pm. There is a stage with performers from 1 – 6pm. If you are coming back to London with us, we will be leaving the park at 16.45pm. We know this is earlier than the performances are finished, but some people with us will be young and the staff will have had a long day. If you are allowed to stay on, you will not need to come with us then and can have your return ticket for your own use from us.
Staying with GI as a group/ informing workers of your whereabouts
You will need to stay with GI workers if you are under 14 for the whole day. If you are 14 – 17 and have permission from a parent or carer, you can go off on your own or in groups for periods of time during the afternoon, but must let a worker know when you’ll be back. If you are 18+ we’d ask that you march with us for the first part and let workers know if you are heading off later – in the spirit of group trips and workers knowing you are ok, but essentially you can go off if you like when we finish the march.
Any questions about the day can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org before Wed 18th of July.
Meeting time and place for returning will be confirmed when we arrive after the march in the park as a group. Workers bringing young people back will aim for the 17:26 train see above.
Please let us know in advance if you have any physical or other needs to enable you to join us. The march is a 1.3mile (25 – 40 minute walk). We will walk from the station to the meeting point before the march which is about a 10 - 15 minute walk. After the park event we will be walking back to the station which will be about 25 minutes.

Gendered Intelligence is delighted to announce the launch of a new telephone support line for trans and gender questioning people who are currently under the care of Nottingham Centre for Transgender Health (NCTH).
