We’re excited to launch InsideOUT’s first annual National Schools Pride Week campaign, with a range of activities that schools, rainbow diversity groups, students and staff can get involved with in their school! 

We hope that by creating opportunities to celebrate and affirm rainbow identities through this campaign we can help reduce the experiences of bullying and distress many of our rainbow rangatahi face, and give these young people an increased sense of belonging in their school communities.
