Nicolas Fisher (pictured) is running the Hackney half-marathon and hoping to raise £300 for Schools OUT UK!
Please donate at Nicolas’ JustGiving page and help him raise lots of much-needed cash for our projects!
Nic is French and has been living in London for 23 years. He works in events as a DJ and also manages a pub in Hackney.
He decided to run for Schools Out as it’s a cause close to his heart, when he grew up as a gay child he wasn’t really aware of homosexuality and always felt different from other children. He believes that if he had been taught at schools that being gay was OK he would have dealt differently with his issues and his shame.
Nic, like us, was really upset recently, reading stories of LGBT+ children being bullied at schools who then took their own lives.
We wish Nic all the best for the run this Sunday! (The race starts at 9am from Hackney Marshes).
