Kibble Held Their Annual Pride Picnic  - Kibble: Specialist services & support for young people facing adversity
Posted: June 29, 2023

All were invited to Kibble’s Pride Picnic for celebrations, discussions and fun. There were opportunities for catch-ups, presentations, music, food and face-painting. As we came together to mark Pride month and all we had learned about tolerance and equality, we applauded the progress made so far, however, acknowledged there is still work to be done.

One creative young person stood up and slowly rolled out a list of countries unaccepting of the LGBTQI+ communities. The moment was extremely moving as each one of us fell silent in the stark realisation that so many people live in a reality where they have no support to be themselves.

In contrast, across Kibble, everyone is welcome – young people, teachers, colleagues and families can be themselves. Happy, positive events are extremely important to bring us together, help us feel like we belong, safe in the knowledge we are amongst friends.
