‘Boy’: UK Parliament Week
17 November | MacMillan Room – Portcullis House | 6 – 8pm

BOY’s aim is to create safe spaces for all young people regardless of identity and sexuality. BOY’s mission is this; to inspire change and create a deeper understanding of the nature of prejudice in all its forms.

BOY has been directly informed by focus group conversations with young people aimed at exploring their experiences of bullying and prejudicial language in the playground and in wider communities, to ensure the themes and content of BOY are grounded in young people’s everyday experiences.
