Pride 2020: Inclusivity wins

This month is Pride Month and we couldn’t say goodbye to June without giving to this a tiny space in our blog. GamesAid is a charity that helps other charities that support children and young people, so for us it’s really important to defend equality and inclusivity as it’s part of creating a world where everyone feels included and valued.

Thus, we wanted spot a couple of charities and initiatives that are doing a very nice job on this:

Mermaids

Mermaids has been supporting trans and gender-diverse children, young people, and their families since 1995. Today, Mermaids has evolved into one of the UK’s leading LGBTQ+ charities, empowering thousands of people with its secure online communities, local community groups, helpline services, web resources, events and residential weekends. Mermaids supports gender-diverse children and young people until their 20th birthday, as well as their families and professionals involved in their care. Transgender and gender-variant children and teens need support and understanding, as well as the freedom to explore their gender identity. Whatever the outcome, Mermaids is committed to helping families navigate the challenges they may face.
