How can we create an LGBTQ+ inclusive education? Today we chat to the brilliant Olly Pike, who is transforming the way in which LGBTQ+ is taught in schools through Pop'n'Olly literature. We talk about his new book What Does LGBTQ+ mean, what it was like growing up as LGBTQ+ in a church community and why educating people about queerness needs to happen all year round!
