In light of the 50th anniversary since Stonewall, I wanted to put together a Trailblazers show with a LGBT organisation that make a real difference. AKT (Albert Kennedy Trust) are the national LGBTQ+ youth homelessness charity; focused on prevention and early action. AKT provides safe homes, mentoring, training, advocacy and support to young people who are homeless or living in a hostile environment after coming out to their parents, care givers and peers.
2019 not only marks 50 years since Stonewall, it marks AKT’s 30th anniversary which provided the perfect opportunity to celebrate these landmarks alongside AKT Chief Executive, Tim Sigsworth MBE.
While time has passed since Stonewall and the founding of AKT, the issue of LGBTQ+ discrimination is still very much prominent in todays society.
