In 2019, The Albert Kennedy Trust will celebrate its 30th anniversary, and we'd like your help to celebrate! Hugh Fell, AKT's President and a founder member has written exclusively for AKT online on how you can help...

"AKT will soon be 30 years old. I wish there was no need for us still to exist but I am proud of the difference all our people – staff, carers, volunteers, donors, corporate supporters and, of course, our young people – have made to the lives of so many thousands of LGBT youngsters over the last three decades.

I would like you to help us write our story – which is the story of all the people who have made AKT what is today – by sharing your stories, emotions, achievements, photographs and news clippings with us so that we can build a record of our unique history through the dimension that matters most to us: people. Of course, AKT cares about changing society’s attitudes towards LGBT people, so tales from our campaigns would also be valuable, especially if told from your personal perspective. 

I hope you will share with us the stories about AKT that matter to you. We will place them in a digital store and feature them in an archive section of our website, on digital channels and maybe through links to other organisations’ web sites. They may also be featured in a proposed museum exhibition currently under discussion.

If you prefer to remain anonymous in public media please let us know when sending us your material and we will respect your wish."
