Equality Forum

Massive congratulations to the Equality Forum and in particular Jo Fitzpatrick. Jo’s poem is being used in the report of the LGBTI Inclusive Education Working Group. The founders of the TIE Campaign, Jordan Daly and Liam Stevenson, thought it perfectly and powerfully encapsulated their campaign as well as the aims of the report. The report will be published around 15:15 today at on www.gov.scot/isbn/9781787812932 and Deputy First Minister will be making a statement to Parliament followed by questions from MSPs that you can watch at https://www.scottishparliament.tv/.
