Age 16, England – East Midlands
For several years, I’ve campaigned for awareness of LGBTQ issues in my school.
In July 2018, my first major event promoted LGBTQ awareness and acceptance. The programme included educational sessions on Sexual Orientation, Anti-LGBTQ abuse, Gender Reassignment, Pride and LGBTQ Rights.
I’m currently developing a new ‘Standing Together’ programme that builds on last year’s event. This year, I’m working with Stonewall and we’re broadening our message to include race, sex and religious beliefs.
I’m proud of what I’ve achieved so far, and look forward to finding new opportunities to campaign for change.
