Gender & Sexuality forum: now open!

Hey everyone,

You spoke and it was thus: due to popular demand and to celebrate Pride month, we're delighted to launch our new Gender & Sexuality forum!

Why not head over now and take a look around. Make sure you look through the guidelines (and add your own suggestions) and read all about the history of Pride

This is your space - feel free to make it yours and post away!

"You're not bitchy at all. What this guy did to you, and how he invalidates it afterwards is horrific and you deserve justice. Rape can happen to anyone..."

      Thanks for letting me know in my inbox

      So what room will it be in and starts this saturday?
      Elleloveschocolate is totally right - you can access the new chat room via the usual page here - just click 'join' on 'support chat' and you'll be taken there in the usual way. The chat room is just called 'under 16's support chat'.

      Good question! A listener is just someone older to go along to these sessions and be there to listen to and help support the younger members. There's no strict way to do that - it's just about being a supportive group member.

          Ask away, that's what we're here for!

          Yep, they will be - the idea being that anyone younger can still attend the chats and be a supportive group member anyway as it's their space to begin with, so this is a way for those over 16 to help out with the sessions and get involved.

                BethM - no worries! These are every two weeks, so it will be next Saturday (11th). We'll be putting up threads for these chats like we do for other chats too, so if in doubt you can always check the Live Chat Announcements forum.

                    Hi, I'm 16, I'm a little bit confused over whether I could come normally or would come as a listener?

                      This is a good question actually. These chats are for 15s and under, but you're more than welcome to sign up as a listener (just drop us a PM if you're interested). Might go without saying, but you're also welcome in all of our regular chat sessions.
