gyro (gay youth 'r' out)
Thursday is 'gyro' day
If you are aged 16 to 25, you can expect a warm welcome every Thursday evening between 7pm and 9.30pm.
The mixed drop-in is a chance for the group to relax and get to know each other better. There are computers for free internet access. We occasionally have trips or meals out, and we regularly invite suggestions from the group for other activities.
gyro is near Lime Street station in Liverpool city centre, at the Young Person's Advisory Service (YPAS), which offers a range of services for children and young people aged 10 to 25, so if you are not 'out', there is no need to worry about what people might think if they saw you coming to the building. Everything discussed in the group is confidential.
To find out more, call 0151 203 0824, email firstname.lastname@example.org or just drop in on Thursday evening at 36 Bolton Street, Liverpool L3 5LX.
