Why we've launched Just Like Us' #YoungerMe campaign

As Chief Exec of Just Like Us, the LGBT+ young people's charity, I’m thrilled that we have launched #YoungerMe – a new campaign highlighting the need for inclusive education.

I hope our #YoungerMe campaign will raise awareness of what it’s really like growing up LGBT+ and what an incredible difference inclusive schools and colleges can make to a young person’s life.

#YoungerMe spent far too long worrying that I was the only person in the world that felt the way I did.

It is a feeling of loneliness that I would not wish on anyone. I can't imagine how thrilled I would have been to have Just Like Us visit my school and tell me that who I was wasn't something to be ashamed of.
