Non-binary author Harry Woodgate has partnered up with the LGBTQ+ youth charity Just Like Us and their annual School Diversity Week event. 

Back in April, the organisation announced that its yearly event would take place from 20-24 June 2022.

The UK-wide celebration will see thousands of primary and secondary schools participate and is set to feature more than 50 free inclusive resources. 

During the week-long event, students will have the opportunity to take part in various activities, including LGBTQ+ inclusive geography and science lessons, storytime activities, school talks, and Rainbow Friday dress-up day.

In addition to the aforementioned festivities, Just Like Us recently announced the inclusion of author Harry Woodgate and their book Grandad’s Camper as one of the event’s free educational resources. 

The heartwarming book follows a girl and her Grandad as they embark on a memorable campervan trip. Along the way, Grandad shares wholesome stories about his adventures with his late partner Gramps.

Under the partnership, the award-winning talent and Just Like Us are set to produce a video reading of the critically-acclaimed book.

Alongside the video, the event will also offer a free reading guide and numerous discussion exercises and prompts regarding Grandad’s Camper.

In a statement, Woodgate expressed their excitement over working with Just Like Us and having the ability to share their book’s inclusive message.

“It’s really lovely to be working with Just Like Us to bring Grandad’s Camper to children, schools and families across the UK in celebration of School Diversity Week,” they said.
