WAYS TO CELEBRATE IN SCHOOLS

1. Go Rainbow

Get everyone to stand out against homophobia, biphobia and transphobia at school by hosting a rainbow clothes day for a gold coin donation. You can also decorate the school or raise the rainbow flag.

2. Run an Event

Like a virtual rainbow lunch or hangout with staff, an online rainbow flag raising, or even a movie viewing party online.

3. Start A Project

Use IDAHOBIT as a way to rally other students and staff together to start an ongoing project that supports sexual and gender diversity. You can check out the Stand Out resource from Minus18 for a head start.

4. Take the Pledge

Students could make a public pledge to support the LGBTIQ community – invite the school community to share their support online, and raise a rainbow flag at school.

5. Shout It Proud

Even if we're doing it from home, use the hashtag #IDAHOBIT and show the world why supporting LGBTIQ students and staff is so important.

6. Run a Class

Teaching LGBTIQ diversity doesn't have to be hard! Book a digital speaker for students, or training for staff.
