Hey! :D Welcome to our website! Have a good look around to find out more about what we do or click to get in touch. PACE is a registered charity that provides Youth Work Support Services for gay, lesbian, bisexual and trans people in and around London. PACE Youth Network provides social opportunities, and specialist help and support for young people aged 19 and under.
Due to overwhelming demand for our weekly youth group and youth network services, we are unable to accept any new members at LQYG, for the moment. We are working hard to change this situation and will keep you updated... watch this space!
The London Queer Youth Group meets every Tuesday evening, 6.00 - 8.30pm, in safe surroundings just a couple of minutes walk from Caledonian Road tube, in Islington, north London. Email us: for further info and/or map and directions.
If you're just 'coming out' or exploring your sexuality or gender identity, it's a great way to meet people, make new friends and find support away from the pressures of the commercial 'gay scene' in London... It's free and there's no obligation to come along every week or even stay for the whole session - it's entirely up to you.
You can find out more about our weekly social/support group here.
There's no pressure to be 'out' or to 'be anything' - other than YOU. We always do our best to make sure new people feel welcome and included. Tuning up for the first time really is the hardest bit! Find out what we get up to here.
