It all takes place on Saturday 25th event at University of Westminster’s Marylebone campus as part of our weekend of events also hosted with G-A-Y.

A loud and proud LGBT activist, the openly gay singer has previously spoken out at events, including Glastonbury Festival, about the fact that LGBT people “know what it’s like to be scared. We know what it’s like to live with fear; It’s part of our every day”.

National Student Pride spokesperson Charlie-Ann Mathers said “Olly is SUCH a BAE, I’m so excited to have him at the event. I just know it will bring so much important attention to Sex and Relationships education. Speaking to students in the build up to the event has shown how important it is that they finally get the SRE they deserve.”

Joining the panel will be:

  • Cliff Joannou – Attitude Editor (Chair)
  • Sarah Nimmo – Popstar
  • Lexi Jean Munroe – Albert Kennedy Trust
  • Deborah Gold – National Aids Trust Chief Executive

Speaking ahead of the panel, Lexi Jean Munroe said  “They never discussed anything about that to me which was rather shocking itself not knowing enough information about sexualities and gender. They never mentioned LGBT relationships sex it’s rather mind boggling isn’t it?”
