Pop'n'Olly - Creating a more accepting world for future generations
Pop'n'Olly is an LGBTQIA+ and equality educational resource used by children, parents, carers and teachers. Our videos and books are used in primary schools across the UK, and beyond, to teach about equality, diversity and acceptance.
Created by Olly Pike, Pop'n'Olly 'usualises' different types of people, particularly those who may be LGBTQIA+, and ultimately aims to combat homo-, bi- and transphobia before it can even begin.
