Queer Day School is a roving DIY education project set up in 2016. The project is aimed at LGBTQ+ people, predominantly those who feel they are based outside of mainstream education and academia, and invites participation in the form of workshops, talks, discussion groups and exhibitions. Queer Day School operates under the radical notion that no form of expression is wrong.
The idea for this project comes largely from my own experiences - I left school at 11 due to mental illness, couldn't afford home tuition and ended up with no GCSE's or A-levels. Through autodidactism I managed to educate myself (predominantly in art, politics, history and pop culture - don't ask me about mathematics) and finally went back into mainstream education aged 24.
