Just Like Us Event (95 of 134).jpg
Our LGBT+ young adult ambassadors deliver talks and workshops championing LGBT+ equality – these are happening virtually during coronavirus, if you need them to.
 
They speak honestly about who LGBT+ people are, and share their own stories growing up LGBT+ today to connect with all students in a powerful way.
After our sessions, 86% of students understand why everyone should care about LGBT+ issues.
Our LGBT+ talks and workshops
Just Like Us LGBT+ ambassadors are professionally trained LGBT+ young adults from different walks of life
 
They use their personal experiences of coming out and overcoming bullying in the recent past to give hope to LGBT+ pupils and help non-LGBT+ pupils understand why LGBT+ equality is important
Our LGBT+ ambassadors cover secondary schools and colleges in Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, Durham, Liverpool, London, Manchester and Oxford
