About

COURAGE BOXING is a LGBT white-collar boxing event held to help raise funds for AKT (The Albert Kennedy Trust).
 

The Charity

AKT are the national LGBTQ+ youth homelessness charity. They support the community by providing Safe homes, mentoring, training, advocacy and support to young people who are homeless or living in a hostile environment after coming out to those around them, with the aim of creating better futures for lgbtq+ young people.
