LGBT+ faith leaders present online interfaith panel for School Diversity Week

Rabbi Anna Posner, Ludovic Zahed, Canon Rachel Mann and Ruby Almeida are speaking on an interfaith panel about being LGBT+, suitable for pupils aged 11 to 16, as part of Just Like Us’ School Diversity Week celebrations.

School Diversity Week is happening 21-25 June and will see a range of free masterclasses taking place online, organised by Just Like Us, the LGBT+ young people’s charity.

Primary schools, secondary schools and colleges can sign up to take part in School Diversity Week, which is a celebration of LGBT+ equality and seeks to improve the lives of LGBT+ young people who right now are disproportionately struggling with mental health, tension at home and feeling less safe in school.

This free interfaith panel is titled ‘Can you be a person of faith and LGBT+?’ and can be watched below.

Join Anna, Ludovic, Rachel and Ruby on Wednesday 23 June at 15:30-16:30 for the premiere of their School Diversity Week interfaith panel.
