Rainbow Laces Season 2022 Comes to West London College

Uniformed and Public Services students at West London College are celebrating Rainbow Laces Season, 19 – 31 October. In their theory session this morning, students discussed British Values, one of which is tolerance, and the importance of recognising and understanding the issues LGBTQ+ people face in relation to this. In their practical lesson which followed, the students took time out to demonstrate their support for Stonewall’s Team Pride campaign by showing off their rainbow laces.

Omari Rhoden, Public Services Level 3, pictured above, said: “It’s really important to show equality, diversity and representation, as well as acceptance. We need to go beyond tolerance.”

Hala Kanaan, Public Services Level 3 said: “There is too much hate in this world and that’s why we need to make it clear whenever we can that we love and accept everyone.”

West London College Public Services teacher Darren Morgan said: “Campaigns like Rainbow Laces Season give us a focal point to discuss British Values such as Tolerance of Different Religions and Beliefs in our tutorials and practicals. It also gives the students the opportunity to talk about personal experiences and friends and family who are LGBTQ+.”
