A very special event for LGBT June Pride Month 2019; award winning LGBT educator, homophobic bullying survivor, and inspirational keynote speaker @ShaunDellenty launches his Bloomsbury Education book ‘Celebrating Difference- A Whole School Approach to LGBT+ Inclusion’ with a one off talk about his book, life and 10 years of ground-breaking LGBT+ inclusion in education work.
Shaun was named one of the 100 most influential LGBT people in the U.K. and was designated as a ‘Point of Light’ by the U.K government in 2016 for services to LGBT+ and education communities. In 2016 he was named LGBT+ Education Champion at the Excellence In Diversity Awards.
His work has featured on national and international television. Shaun’s talk will be followed by a Q+A and a screening of the film ‘Pride’ by Stephen Beresford and directed by Matthew Warchus. Based on a true story, the film depicts a group of lesbian and gay activists who raised money to help families affected by the British miners' strike in 1984, at the outset of what would become the Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners campaign.
Bloomsbury Publishing will be on hand in the foyer to serve an initial welcome drink and they will bring a card reader to sell copies of ‘Celebrating Difference- A Whole School Approach to LGBT+ Inclusion.’
Shaun Dellenty will be available during the film to personalise books of requested. Shaun invited attendees are to wear something inspired by the colours of the rainbow but this is a suggestion.
Please note the ticket fee is to cover the film and venue costs; Shaun Dellenty will not be taking monies from ticket sales.
