Holding an event

Ideas bank

These events are great for involving the whole school in celebrating LGBT+ equality.

If you’ve got a Community Action Team or a keen set of student leaders, share these ideas and let us know any others they have.

Many of these ideas can easily be turned into fundraising events to support our work tackling homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying.

Quick wins

Non-uniform day

Organise a diversity themed non-uniform day during the week.

Pride Walk

Arrange for pupils to walk to school together or hold a march around the school site.


Post boxes

Make a post box from a cardboard box and set it up in the canteen. Leave paper and pens out for pupils and staff to write messages of support for LGBT+ young people.

Challenge pupils to create rainbows with any material during the week, sharing photos on
Instagram or Twitter.

A bit more effort

Getting crafty

Get a group of pupils together to make bracelets or another simple craft item, to sell
