About the organisation


Just Like Us partners with prestigious employers to train you to give talks in assemblies that challenge homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying, bust stereotypes and explain why LGBT+ equality is everyone’s issue.

Application deadline: 
Friday, 25 October 2019

3 in 4 LGBT+ young people have been bullied, and LGBT+ school students are twice as likely to face discrimination.

Our network of 200 trained LGBT+ ambassadors work to change that, by championing LGBT+ equality and allyship in schools and colleges as relatable LGBT+ role models.

They also blog, tweet and raise awareness all over the UK.
