Advice on hand for youth at Mardi Gras.

FOR the third year running, Cardiff Mardi Gras will host a Youth and Family Zone at the Coopers Field event on September 1. Because many young people identify themselves as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or those who are questioning their sexual or gender identity are getting younger each year, organisers feel that it is important for the event to provide an area for these young people.

The Youth Zone offers young people the chance to speak to qualified youth workers about any issues they may face and signpost young people onto the relevant agencies in their areas.

The Youth Zone at Cardiff Wales LGBT Mardi Gras has grown in popularity each year. In 2010, the Youth Zone engaged with around 500 young people and in 2011, this grew to around 1,000.
