Outburst is an LGBT youth Group. In the early 2000s it was started by the GAi Project (now Healthy Gay Nottingham) and met at their base on Broad Street. In the mid 2000s it received funding from the City Council, moved to Base 51 and had a support worker (Davina Daniels) assigned to it.
In 2010, the City Council removed their funding and there was concern that the grounp would fold. In fact, the group became self-supporting, retained its home at Base 51 and became more popular than ever.
In August 2011, the people at Outburst said the following:
Outburst is a Youth Group for people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans or think that they might be. If this is you and you are aged 13 to 25 you would be more than welcome to join us, we meet in Nottingham city centre at Base 51 every Wednesday evening.
Outburst is a very friendly place and provides you with a safe place to meet people, socialise and take part in activities, we can also help you to access extra support if you need it
Over the last year Outburst has gone from strength to strength with 40 young people attending most weeks. Check out our website for more information www.outburst.org.uk
