Jor­dan Daly, 22, Bon­ny­bridge

Sunday Mail (UK) - - Young Scot 2018 -

Jor­dan was just 12 when he was driven to the brink of sui­cide by ho­mo­pho­bic bul­lies.

As an adult, he set up the Time for In­clu­sive Ed­u­ca­tion ( TIE) cam­paign to train teach­ers in les­bian, gay, bi­sex­ual, trans­gen­der and in­ter­sex is­sues. Jor­dan gave ev­i­dence to a par­lia­men­tary com­mit­tee and se­cured a man­date from a ma­jor­ity of MSPs in favour of TIE’s pledge for in­clu­sive ed­u­ca­tion in all schools – a world first.
