Spread a message of LGBTQ+ hope with It Gets Better UK at Brighton Pride! at It Gets Better UK

It Gets Better UK exists to tell LGBTQ+ stories of hope, and to inspire and empower young LGBTQ+ people. The aim is to both archive the stories of LGBTQ+ people, but also to combat the high levels of self-harm and suicide in LGBT+ youth by providing role models and the positive message that “It Gets Better”.

What does the opportunity involve doing?

We are recruiting volunteers to oversee and help at our Pride stall at Brighton Pride, 3-4 August.

At Pride, we share positive stories from members of the LGBTQ+ community. We encourage attendees to share their story, message to their younger self, or message of support. The conversations we have are uplifting and often emotional

What induction, training and support is offered?

You’ll receive our Volunteer Handbook and attend a briefing. Each stall will have multiple volunteers so nobody is alone.

What skills or qualities are needed?

• A personable and friendly manner
• Confidence in crowds, speaking to strangers and members of the public
• Sensitivity to, awareness of LGBTQ+ issues
