My LGBT+ Story: video resources for your classroom
In 2018, Just Like Us began creating a collection of videos for schools and young people around the UK, sharing what it’s like being LGBT+ in different communities.
The set of videos features a range of real LGBT+ young adults - not actors, and not scripted - talking about being LGBT+.
How will they help?
■ young LGBT+ people everywhere will be able to watch these videos online, gaining hope by seeing people like themselves
■ showing these videos in class will help all young people learn about LGBT+ people and become allies
Some of the videos feature in our ready-to-deliver lessons and activities, which are primarily aimed at KS3 pupils but can be adapted:
Bec from West Bromwich identifies as a bisexual trans man
■ realising you’re trans but not in the ‘typical’ way
■ the benefits and drawbacks of online communities
