LEAP Quilt

During this session Charleston Academy had an exciting opportunity to be involved with the LEAP Sports Quilt, contributing to a small quilt panel for Pride House Legacy Quilt in a project, which tied together LGBTIQ+ perspectives with the 2018 European Championships, Scotland’s Year of Young People and the European Year of Cultural Heritage.

Well done to Caitlin Strong, Lara McGillivray & Rae Ambrose for contributing to this fantastic project and celebrating diversity.

The quilt has previously been exhibited in Pride House in Glasgow during the European Championships before traveling to other host schools.

‘LEAP’ is Scotland’s LGBTQ+ Charity and the quilt was created by groups of young people across Scotland to encourage participation of all young people in sport and activity … regardless of sexuality or gender identity.
