Young people from Allsorts Youth Project have spent the last year producing a podcast about what it’s like growing up and identifying as LGBT+.
“Allsorts of Thoughts” gives a relatable, fun, friendly and inclusive voice to young people, particularly those who are LGBT+ or unsure. It’s a space that increases representation and visibility of LGBT+ young people whilst reaching out to those who are isolated, letting them know that they are not alone.
The presenters, Colin & Ray, skillfully entertain the listener, offering their thoughts and feelings on a variety of different topics, as seen through the eyes of young LGBT+ people.
Over the series they reflect on their lived experiences, including attending Pride, what it was like coming out, talking to parents about their identity, and being part of Allsorts Youth Project. This first episode is about Pride and what it means to them and is also a taster of what the Allsorts community is about!
“We are using our safe space to create your safe space” Ray, Presenter

Funded by Sussex Community Foundation, everyone involved also took part in broadcast training which was a fantastic opportunity to increase knowledge and enhance skills.
“I have genuinely been on a creative journey with these young people to get us here today with a finished episode of our first ever Allsorts Youth Project Podcast! We have all given 100% to its creation and I am very proud of our achievements!” Jo, Youth Support Worker
