JANUARY was a month full of activity for Darby Fullerton.

The Wangaratta teen was honoured with the rural city’s youth citizen of the year last Friday and then attended the LGBTI+ pride march in Melbourne on Sunday, all before returning to school last Wednesday.

He received the award for his integral role in forming Kings, Queen’s and Aces, a group aimed to provide support for the local LGBTI+ community.

Darby’s involvement with youth council, the Alpine Valley Community Leadership Program and other community groups also contributed to his nomination.

The 18 year old continued the excitement when he attended the Midsumma Festival Pride March in St Kilda last Sunday.
