I started volunteering because this is a great cause helping people like myself feel good about who they are as well as increasing awareness. Volunteering at Totnes Pride was an awesome experience that hopefully helped other people know more about the youth group and increase our visibility in the community.
Proud2Be Youth Member & Volunteer
Over the last 4-5 years I have been part of Proud2Be growing, flourishing, establishing itself as a professional, committed, inclusive organisation. I am proud to be part of an organisation that continues to question, develop and still have a sense of humour.

The Action Group are an amazing group of people who are just wonderful to spend time with. Proud2Be is an inclusive, accepting, loving and nourishing organisation. I feel privileged to be part of it.
LGBT kids are highly vulnerable, it breaks my heart knowing there will almost certainly be kids in these communities — who feel that they are different — who are hearing the message that the way in which they feel different is considered so shameful that it's not even mentionable
Whether you like LGBT people or not, your children are going to see us in the media. And when they grow up they might end up working in an office with us. Or sit next to a gay person on a bus. Or share a gym with one. Or be served by someone trans in a shop. We exist. Get over it
We are now officially a Living Wage Employer! So what better time to join our team and help deliver our LGBTQ+ youth service... there are still 4 days left to apply for our Community Support Worker post 🏳️🌈
