Play with pups and meet your faves

National Student Pride hosts its first ever YouTubers & Puppies room

You’ve heard of therapy puppies, right? Well, this year’s National Student Pride is going all out and putting two of the best LGBT youth interests together.

From 3pm to 4pm at Westminster University, Marylebone campus, National Student Pride will be hosting its first ever YouTubers & Puppies room!

Students from all over the country will be able to come and hang out with their favourite vloggers whilst they all play with some lovely lil pups.

Of course, there will be opportunity to take a selfie with the YouTuber while you get to know them.

This year we are thrilled to announce the room will feature Doug Armstrong, Olly Pike, OurSwirlLife, Ellen Stephenson, Laura Lu and Saskia & Lily.

Doug Armstrong has 269k subscribers and has been making videos since 2008. This will be his first time at National Student Pride!

Olly Pike attended the event last year with his Pop’n’Olly stand in the careers fair. His educational YouTube channel for LGBTI children has over 12,000 subscribers.

Jack and Ben joined YouTube in 2016, sharing their life together in weekly videos. After a short break, YouTube channel OurSwirlLife is back to bring its 47k subscribers even more amazing videos.

Ellen Stephenson made the brave decision to come out as trans on her YouTube channel in September last year. So, National Student Pride had to start this year by inviting her to her first Student Pride.

Laura Lu will be attending National Student Pride for the her first time too this year! With over 10,000 subscribers, she’ll also be taking part in Queer Dates on the main stage where drag queen Courtney Act will set her up with one lucky student.

Finally in the YouTube room will be the ever adorable Saskia & Lily. The girls joined us last year on our YouTube panel hosted by Riyadh Khalaf, which looked at bullying online. Also last year, Saskia appeared in BBC Radio One’s documentary Coming Out Uploaded which was presented by Nick Grimshaw.
