Rainbow Friday: Join our non-uniform fundraiser on 24 June
Rainbow Friday is a non-uniform day that happens every year during School Diversity Week to raise awareness and fundraise for Just Like Us.
It’s a chance for primary and secondary schools to open up conversations about being LGBT+ inclusive while celebrating in wonderful rainbow colours.
What is Rainbow Friday?
This year, Rainbow Friday takes place on 24 June.
Staff and pupils at your school could dress up in rainbow colours or rainbow clothes.
You could even allocate a colour per year group or form, so that together you create the rainbow or Pride progress flag as a school.
We recommend asking staff and pupils to bring a voluntary donation of £1.
If you’d like to, and have pupil permission, you could post your photos on Twitter, tagging @JustLikeUsUK and using #SchoolDiversityWeek.
What is School Diversity Week?
As part of the event, Just Like Us provides free LGBT+ inclusive resources for EYFS to KS4.
For the first time this year, there is also a storytime series with children’s authors.
Thousands of primary and secondary schools are signed up to take part this 20-24 June.
Rainbow Friday fundraisers can help Just Like Us to provide free resources during School Diversity Week and support more LGBT+ young people.
