Will Young visited members of a Hackney youth group to show his support for lesbian, gay, bisexual or queer youngsters.

The Leave Right Now singer attended in his capacity as an ambassador for Holloway based charity PACE, which promotes the mental health and emotional well-being of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community.

Project Indigo, in collaboration with PACE, offers a safe space for young LGBT people, as well as opportunities to make friends and have fun.

The singer commended the project for supporting LGBT people experience bullying, rejection and harassment which can seriously affect their mental health, well-being and ability to get on with life.

He said: “It is so important for young LGBT people to have a chance to communicate within a safe, trusting environment. It’s been fantastic to meet with the guys in Project Indigo.”
