Year 12 pupil Charles marked Pride Month with a presentation in Chapel

To mark Pride Month, Year 12 pupil Charles K gave a chapel presentation in which he told his audience about the events leading up to Pride, starting with the Stonewall Riots of the 1960s. He candidly discussed his own experiences, the value of living in a diverse community, the importance of acceptance and the joy of being able to live authentically and without the constraints of labels: ‘to define is to limit’. Charles outlined the challenges for teenagers of coming out and reminded us ultimately of Dr Seuss’s wise words, ‘Those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.’
