New research from Just Like Us has discovered that 82% of UK parents are in favour of their children learning about LGBTQ+ families at schools.

The LGBTQ+ youth charity conducted a survey of 1,001 parents. It revealed that an overwhelming majority believe that it’s “important” for children to “learn that different types of families exist”.

However, 34% of parents said there is not enough support and resources for them to educate their children on LGBTQ+ issues. The research also found that a third of UK parents have never spoken to their child about what LGBTQ+ means, and 10% “never would” discuss LGBTQ+ topics with their children.
