Cavan LGBT Youth Group
Dundalk Outcomers are currently hosting an "AIM" LGBT Youth drop-in service for Cavan town. This after school service is being held every Thursday from 4pm-5.30pm.
This is a place for young lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people aged 14 to 18, to meet each other in a safe and non-judgmental space. Some activities and events will also be organized over the coming months, depending on what the group wants to do.
If you know anyone who might be interested in attending this group, please let them know about it. Contact John from Dundalk Outcomers for more information.
On December 1st 2010 The Anglo Celt ran a feature on LGBT inC and some of its members. A full page spread was dedicated to our group in the Cavan Living Section of the paper, and it included accounts from some of our members, about what it's like for them to be LGBT and living in Cavan.
It was wonderful to see LGBT people represented in the local paper and we have received a lot of positive feedback regarding the piece.
Hopefully it will encourage new members to join LGBT inC and become part of our growing community.
