SHORTLISTED NOMINEE: 

POSITIVE ROLE MODEL AWARD FOR LGBT –


Shaun is an advocate for LGBT+ inclusion in education and communities. In 2009, in direct response to homophobia in his school, Shaun publicly ‘came out’ to pupils, staff and parents, devising ‘Inclusion For All’ to train educators nationally on positive LGBT+ inclusion. A homophobia survivor, Shaun recounts his inspiring journey to thousands of young people, pioneering LGBT+ inclusion in primary and faith schools, setting an example that others would follow. This incredible role model has trained well over 25,000 U.K. education professionals and featured in national press and on television. Shaun supports many national LGBT and anti-bullying organizations, teacher unions and Amnesty and has advised at government level. Increasingly working overseas, Shaun is currently supporting the entire Isle of Man education system to become LGBT+ inclusive. Shaun’s first book ‘Celebrating Difference’ published by Bloomsbury Education in June 2019.
