Friday Lunch: Promoting LGBTQ+ awareness and understanding
Fri 7 Dec, 1pm, 8 Castle street
with The Gordon Schools' LGBTQ+ and Allies Club
The LGBTQ+ and Allies Club formed to create a safe social space within the school for pupils who identify as LGBTQ+ or consider themselves allies of those that do.
Speakers from the club presented the work they've done so far towards promoting awareness of LGBTQ+ matters in the school and in their local community of Huntly through presentations at assemblies, presence at the Farmers Market, and fundraising events to enable the club to attend Grampian Pride. The club also spoke of their empowering Gayferal form, which calls out discrimination against the LGBTQ+ community within the school, and future plans, including the making of a film to be submitted to the Scottish Queer International Film Festival (SQIFF)
