Aim High

An updated 2011 version specifically for our Safer Schools Packs as part of the ongoing LGF campaign 'Enough is Enough!Action against homophobia'.

From the foreward by Peter Tatchell:

The barriers preventing gay people from leading happy and successful lives have come tumbling down over the last decade. Britain has gone from being one of the most homophobic nations in Europe to being one of the most gay friendly.

Twenty of the most powerful and influential lesbians and gay men have been interviewed for this ground-breaking information resource from The Lesbian & Gay Foundation.

Each of the individuals who feature in the guide have achieved huge success in their chosen professions, such as sport, politics, business, media and the arts.

Included in the booklet are Conservative party MP Alan Duncan; President of UK TV at RTL Dawn Airey; former NBA basketball player John Amaechi; international film star Sir Ian McKellen and punk rocker Beth Ditto among many other notable inspirational figures.

The interviewees act not only as living examples of how LGB people can achieve just as much success as their heterosexual counterparts, but offer invaluable advice, guidance and encouragement.

This resource aims to encourage young LGB people to reach their goals and to show sexuality should not get in the way of success in the workplace, by providing a selection of role models to aspire and draw inspiration from.
