Register your event to stay in the loop.

WAYS TO CELEBRATE IN SCHOOLS

1. Go Rainbow

Inspire your classroom, cohort or school to stand out against discrimination by going rainbow. Put up posters, star discussions, or wear a rainbow lanyard. One of our favourites: raising the rainbow flag!

2. Run an Event

Like a rainbow school assembly, staff room morning tea, classroom discussion, or even a rainbow bake sale.

3. Start A Project

Use IDAHOBIT as a way to rally other students and staff together to start an ongoing project that supports sexual and gender diversity. You can check out the Stand Out resource from Minus18 for a head start.

4. Take the Pledge

Students could make a public pledge to support the LGBTIQ community – invite the school community to share their support online, and raise a rainbow flag at school.

5. Shout It Proud

Even if we're doing it from home, use the hashtag #IDAHOBIT and show the world why supporting LGBTIQ students and staff is so important.

6. Run a Class

Teaching LGBTIQ diversity doesn't have to be hard! Book a digital speaker for students, or training for staff.
