Two young people wearing METRO youth t-shirts after Pride in London

About this service

METRO Shine is a group for lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, non-binary, queer and questioning young people in Greenwich and Bexley. We meet in Greenwich every Tuesday from 6:30pm to 8:30pm.

It's a safe space to meet other LGBTQ young people, get support and have fun. We usually have snacks and hang out together. Sometimes we talk about identity, relationships and wellbeing. Every Christmas we have a party with dancing, pizza and cake. We also go to the cinema, Pride in London and UK Black Pride.

Who can use this service

You need to be aged between 16 and 25 and live in Greenwich or Bexley. You also need to identify as LGBTQ or be questioning your sexuality or gender identity. All our youth groups are free and confidential.
