Episode Eleven - 'Back To School' (Part Two - with Dominic Arnall)

This week on the Virgin Radio Pridecast, Alex and Shivani are continuing their exploration into education and the relationship which the LGBTQ+ community has with it.

You’ll hear from Tik Tok inclusivity educator Benjy Kusi on whether we have a responsibility to educate those outside of the community on LGBTQ+ issues, Peter Tatchell on the link between direct action and education, former teacher Elly Barnes on her experience coming out to her pupils, and so much more.

Plus - Alex and Shivani are joined by Dominic Arnall, CEO of charity Just Like Us, for a chat about their incredible work to empower young people to champion LGBTQ+ equality. You can find out more information, as well as how you can get involved, at https://www.justlikeus.org/
