What should I know?

As a young person you have a right to education and development to help develop your own ‘personality, talents and mental and physical abilities to the full’. You also have the right to leisure, play and culture.  This means that you should be supported in exploring your interests, strengths and ambitions, and in thinking about what you might want and hope to happen in your future.

What might help me?

  1. Being able to see and imagine what different LGBTQ+ lives and futures look like
  2. You should be supported to explore your interests and ambitions in ways that work for you

Tomi* (young person) said “as an LGBTQ person in a particularly homophobic school, to be welcomed with such open arms was so good. I remember after my first session feeling like I could do anything I wanted to because I knew who I am isn’t a bad thing, its something to be celebrated.”
