CELEBRATING PRIDE MONTH_

It's Pride Month! It’s the 50th anniversary since the Stonewall Riots in 1969 and we’re still as dedicated as ever to celebrating LGBTQ+ young people and their incredible work.

Diana Award Anti-Bullying Ambassador and Diana Award Holder Leo is sharing his experience as a member of the LGBTQ+ community and why he thinks there is still much to do to tackle homophobia, biphobia and transphobia today.
