  • This week is Transgender Awareness Week! 🏳️‍⚧ This week takes place from 13th-19th of November leading up to Trans Day of Remembrance on 20th of November, an important day of remembrance for those lives we have sadly lost to transphobic violence. This week we want to celebrate our transgender and non-binary students and support their fight against inequality and discrimination.
