A short film aimed at schools and young people. The purpose of the film is to raise awareness of the experiences Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans (LGBTQ) young people have in schools.

This film has been made possible through the support of Merlin Housing Society who grant funded the Diversity Trust to carry out a series of events with local schools.

We are grateful to the many people who have participated in the making of the film including the Director for Children, Adults and Health, and the teachers and other school professionals. We are particularly grateful to the LGBTQ young people who have given some very personal accounts of their experiences at school.

Special thanks to Alphabets LGBTQ youth group, Brimsham Green School and Lakers School.
