World Leading LGBTIQ-Inclusive Schools Program Special Extended Interview


Time for Inclusive EducationThis is the special extended interview – World Leading LGBTIQ-Inclusive Schools Program with Jordan Daly and Liam Stevenson. This podcast includes additional content to that contained in the podcast and broadcast of World Wide Wave on October 6, 2020.

A chance meeting at a protest for Scottish independence brought together two unlikely change-makers – a 19 year old gay university student who suffered homophobic bullying at school and a 36 year old straight truck driver and married father of one. The result is the most comprehensive anti-homophobia program to be taught in schools.

Jordan Daly and Liam Stevenson formed the Time for Inclusive Education (TIE) campaign in 2015 and this has grown into a fully-fledged charity with one aim: to combat homophobia, biphobia and transphobia in schools. The Scottish Government then announced that their LGBT-inclusive education would be implemented across all state schools to ensure that the Scottish education system is inclusive for everyone across the rainbow community.
