Educate & Celebrate are experts in transforming schools and organisations into LGBT+Friendly places, creating a safe environment for staff, students, governors and parents to thrive and achieve, enabling everyone to be themselves without fear of discrimination
All our Educate & Celebrate trainers are experienced teachers who have made their own schools LGBT+Friendly. Our trainers are from all over the UK and have made positive institutional change in a variety of school settings and organisations.
Increasing visibility around Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity changes and saves lives. Our approach is preventative, proactive and accessible to all. We believe every conversation is important to move forward with breaking down the barriers to LGBT+Inclusion.
‘The whole principle of Educate & Celebrate has influenced everything in our school life, we have changed our vision statement to reflect it, there are rainbow touches throughout the school!’

Helping students and teachers in our schools to become more confident about themselves, more at ease with others, and more proud about who and what they are: there’s no more important task than this. Lord Chris Smith, Master at Pembroke College, Cambridge
Thanks to Educate & Celebrate I’ve now visited Gay’s the Word – the UK’s only specifically lesbian and gay bookstore. Over champagne and literature, like-minded individuals shared stories of struggle and triumph as educators and students spoke to the impact the organisation has had on their lives. The effervescent Elly Barnes was the perfect host and advocate; warmly welcoming friends and strangers to participate in the crowdfunding campaign which will ensures LGBT+ posters and information is visible and accessible in secondary schools across the country. An afternoon – and investment – well spent! Hayley Zimak, Journalist
