You Know You’re Supportive… But Do Others?

Easy Ways to Show Your Support for LGBT+ Families, Students & Colleagues

Wherever I am, whenever I see a rainbow flag, sticker, or wristband it makes me feel a little bit more relaxed, a little more positive and a little spark bit of joy.

Showing support for anyone who identifies as LGBT+, such as students, family members or colleagues, is incredibly powerful. Countless young people and parents have told me how much it means to them to see a rainbow/trans-supportive flag on display at their school.

A rainbow flag is a very low-cost and easy (but high impact!) way to ensure that LGBT+ parents/carers know they can talk to you openly, that colleagues can be themselves around you, and that students (who may or may not yet know they are LGBT+) know that whoever they, their friends or their family are, is absolutely fine. Everyone is welcome in your classroom/school.

Five Easy Ways to Show YOU are LGBT+ Welcoming and Inclusive at School:

• Wear a rainbow lanyard (rainbow/trans lanyards are available from The Proud Trust)

• Put a rainbow/trans-inclusive sticker on your classroom door or whiteboard

• Tuck a progress pride flag into your pen pot

• Add your pronouns to your email signature e.g. Mel Lane (she/her)

• Wear an 'ally' badge

Five Tips for YOUR SCHOOL to Show They are LGBT+ Inclusive:

• Fly the progress pride flag outside your school

• Display a mini pride/trans-inclusive flag in the reception area for visitors to see clearly

• Include something on your website stating that everyone is welcome in your school, including people with protected characteristics.

• Display some Pop’n’Olly LGBT+ Hero Posters around the school

• Add pronouns to staff photos and name badges
