Trafalgar Entertainment (TE) – the international live entertainment business – is celebrating PRIDE MONTH this June with a company-wide fundraising appeal for LGBTQ+ homelessness charity, akt.
akt (formerly the Albert Kennedy Trust) is a charity supporting LGBTQ+ young people aged 16-25 who are facing or experiencing homelessness or living in hostile environments.
Coming out, or being outed as LGBTQ+, can lead to young people being made homeless, and 24% of homeless young people identify as LGBTQ+.
The charity aims to find these young people safe homes, employment, education or training and to celebrate their identities to improve their life outcomes.
Every day throughout June, visitors to Trafalgar Entertainment’s UK venues including the Wyvern Theatre and Arts Centre in Swindon will be able to donate directly to akt by scanning a QR code (displayed in venues) on their mobile phones.
You can also donate to TE’s akt Just Giving Page: justgiving.com/fundraising/trafalgarentertainmentakt
