Pride Month is all about celebrating individuality and inclusiveness through colourful parades and events. However, we at Scottish Rowing acknowledge that this can sometimes prove to be a difficult time for those who are struggling with their identity or those in difficult situations. We have compiled a list of organisations who are dedicated to providing support and opportunities to those in the LGBTQ+ community. The below organisations can be utilised by both people within the LGBTQ+ community and those who are looking to gain a better understanding of what it all means. We encourage anyone who is struggling, curious or is just looking for some more information to check out these fantastic organisations.
