Celebrating Pride at Lava Javas

Limerick Youth Service (LYS) & GOSHH will host Limerick’s only Pride Youth Party at Lava Javas Youth Cafe, Lr Glentworth St, Limerick on Friday, July 12th (5:30-8pm).

A celebration of the LGBTQI+ youth community, this year’s Pride Youth Party is open to all young people, regardless of gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation or race are invited.

Organised by members of the LGBTQI+ Youth Group Limerick, the evening promises to be a colourful affair with live music, games, painting and plenty of food!

‘It’s going to be the biggest and best Pride Youth Party ever!’ said LYS’ Olivia Chau, who has been busy working with the young people ahead of this year’s Pride.

‘The young people will display what Pride means to them through art pieces, music and rainbow themed food,’ said Olivia adding ‘they will also be preparing for Limerick’s Pride Parade which takes place the following day, Saturday July 13th.’

LGBT+ Youth Limerick is a partnership between LYS and GOSHH and is a group where LGBTQI+ young people can spend time, meet friends and access support and guidance.

The group has been to the fore in supporting young people who identify as LGBTQI+ and also engages with parents and family members.

‘Although attitudes have changed there are still young people for whom ‘coming out’ can be a lonely and tough place and that is where our group helps,’ said Olivia

The group meet every Friday at Lava Javas Youth Café where LGBTQI+ young people can meet friends or access support and information on issues such as sexuality and gender.
