I started volunteering because this is a great cause helping people like myself feel good about who they are as well as increasing awareness. Volunteering at Totnes Pride was an awesome experience that hopefully helped other people know more about the youth group and increase our visibility in the community.
Proud2Be Youth Member & Volunteer
The Action Group are an amazing group of people who are just wonderful to spend time with. Proud2Be is an inclusive, accepting, loving and nourishing organisation. I feel privileged to be part of it.
Ally, Proud2Be Volunteer
Over the last 4-5 years I have been part of Proud2Be growing, flourishing, establishing itself as a professional, committed, inclusive organisation. I am proud to be part of an organisation that continues to question, develop and still have a sense of humour.
I was on a panel for Totnes Pride Online earlier this month and it was super insightful! We discussed allyship towards LGBTQ+ young people and creating safer spaces for them to be themselves. Would love to take part in more stuff like this to uplift my trans community! https://twitter.com/_Proud2Be/status/1303730457335472131
During Totnes Pride Online, Maia Thomas; co-organiser of Black Lives Matter Protest in Exeter, spoke about her involvement in the Black Lives Matter movement and answered questions about how to be a better ally.
