My LGBT+ Story 


A collection of videos of LGBT+ young adults - not actors - from all walks of life,

telling their stories

In 2019, Just Like Us created a collection of videos for schools and young people around the UK, sharing what it's like being LGBT+ in different communities

Watch Bec discuss how he learned he was trans, Lauryn recount how she unexpectedly found acceptance from her Jamaican grandma, Naomi reflect on the radical place of LGBT+ people in the church and many more stories

Our videos on Facebook - share to show others

Use our videos in the classroom


Young LGBT+ people are much more likely than their peers to feel lonely and isolated, often unable to see people like them

Using our videos in the classroom allows your LGBT+ students to gain hope by seeing people like themselves


Showing our videos in class also helps all young people learn about LGBT+ people and become allies


For template lessons, resources and discussion ideas that use our videos, register to receive our School Diversity Week toolkit
