Using LGBT history month, Stoke Newington School has not only taught their own students about the need for equality, zero discrimination and self-worth, but now have them championing these issues amongst their peers, parents and local community.

As humans, if we are not taught basic morality and human rights from a young age, we are likely to never learn it. As Hilary Clinton’s stated in her recent Human Rights Day speech to the UN: “Like being a woman, like being a racial, religious, tribal, or ethnic minority, being LGBT does not make you less human. And that is why gay rights are human rights, and human rights are gay rights.”
