Providing a safe space for young LGBT people and friends to meet and socialise.
Educational elements include project based work.
All LGBT young people and allies welcome.
There are a number of new members in attendance, each referred through school and social work respectively.
Current projects include the organisation of West Lothian Pride 2018 in West Lothian in conjunction with the West Lothian Pride Committee. This will take place in July. Local media will be invited, along with Cosla reps, local councillors and other WLC officials. It is hoped that schools will send delegates of students to take part in the event.
An open evening for parents and carers is being organised to take place in early summer. On display will be art work, creative writing and photographs, highlighting the work of the young people. There are also plans for the Glitter Cannons to take part in Bathgate Gala-day procession. However perhaps the most ambitious project currently being undertaken is an official Race for Life event, to take place in Armadale Academy. It is hoped that delegations of students from schools from across West Lothian will take part, along with the entire CYS team...
Glitter Cannon workers are currently facilitating two new LGBT groups in both Bathgate and Armadale Academy. These are very well attended and have numbers in excess of 14 -16 young people each week. All of the above projects are being developed in conjunction with Dynamic Youth Awards.
Glitter Cannon staff are currently supporting Armadale and Bathgate Academy to gain the LGBT Scotland Charter mark.
The Glitter Cannons and West Lothian Youth Forum recently won an award at the annual Cosla presentation ceremony, which took place in Crieff Hydro on 12th March.
