Bradford City Schools Tour 2016

Naz & Matt Foundation to tackle Religious & Cultural Homophobia in Bradford schools

Naz & Matt Foundation are coming to Bradford! As part of our schools strategy and after months of hard work by Project Light UK and Bradford College (thank you both!), our two day schools tour around Bradford is now confirmed.

Sponsored by Bradford District Community Safety Partnership, we will be visiting a number of secondary schools and colleges to give talks to students about the dangers of religious & cultural homophobia and bullying. We will also be showing our short film “The Search For Sunrise”.

At the end of day two, a FREE public panel event will be taking place on the evening of Tuesday 18th October with guest panelists including:

  • Saorsa Tweedale (DWP National Diversity Ambassador and Trans +ve)
  • Nikki Thorbrian (S.P.I.C.E and Equity Partnership)
  • John Ebo (Head Of Service, City Centre Management, Leeds City Council)
  • Matthew Naz Mahhmood-Ogston (Naz & Matt Foundation)

The discussion will be hosted and chaired by Marvina Newton from Angel of Youths.

Introducing Project Light UK: Ahmer Bashir (Project Light UK).

This panel event is open to everyone, and we would like to invite you to join us to talk openly and debate “Sexuality, Gender Identity & Belief” – an exploration of intersectionality between LGBTQI+ and faith.

We need change. We need attitudes to be more accepting. We need eyes and hearts to be opened. We need unconditional love to be the norm between parents and their children, regardless of faith, no faith or religion.
