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.
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:
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).
The British LGBT Awards has been awarding LGBT+ achievement and inclusion for over half a decade, borne of the want to promote greater acceptance and reward those who have demonstrated a commitment to equality, opportunity and fair treatment for all.
