Get involved with #InThisTogether…

British LGBT Awards are asking the LGBT+ people and organisations for messages of support to go out to the LGBT+ community, and particularly young people struggling with life in lockdown.
If you can do a quick video message and put it out on your social media channel during May, we will push it out through our social media, website and other channels? Please use #InThisTogether.

ABOUT

Caitlyn Jenner, Stephen Fry and Lena Waithe record video messages to LGBT+ young people struggling with life in lockdown 

– The British LGBT Awards and It Gets Better UK have teamed up for the #InThisTogether campaign which launches tomorrow 
 
– Queer Eye’s Bobby Berk, Feel Good star Mae Martin and director Dustin Lance Black are amongst an array of LGBT+ celebrities to record messages of hope


Caitlyn Jenner, Stephen Fry and Lena Waithe are leading a line-up of big celebrity names backing a new online campaign in support of LGBT+ young people who are struggling with daily life during Covid-19. 

As a result of lockdown and social distancing measures, many young people are having to endure unaccepting or hostile situations because of their sexual orientation or gender identity. 

#InThisTogether will see the release of a series of videos made by celebrities offering messages of support to isolated LGBT+ young people facing challenging circumstances. 

Celebs who have given their support:
Stephen Fry
Lena Waithe
Mae Martin
Caitlyn Jenner
And many more…

The initiative by the British LGBT Awards and supported by It Gets Better UK, will launch tomorrow (Tuesday 19 May 2020), and will share a list of charity resources that can be accessed by young LGBT+ people. The campaign will also ask members of the public to film and share their own messages of support. 

The #InThisTogether campaign will be released on Tuesday 19 May via the British LGBT Awards social media channels, Twitter (twitter.com/britlgbtawards) and Instagram (instagram.com/britishlgbtawards), and also via the British LGBT Awards website (britishlgbtawards.com). 

A list of charity resources for young people can be found at britishlgbtawards.com/InThisTogether
The promo video can be found here from 8am on Tuesday 19 May.
