We (Being Me Campaign charity) are launching our inspiring #IAmBeingMe video at YouTube Space London next week during National Anti-Bullying Week 2016. Our 3 minute #IAmBeingMe video is made up of 40 individuals from across the world, celebrating their differences & sharing their advice to others who maybe hiding who they are. We want to inspire the nation to be proud of their differences, as well as embracing, celebrating and loving others for who they are.

From our survey, we know many young people and adults are hiding who they are and their differences because they are scared of being excluded, bullied or discriminated against for simply being who they are.

This needs to change, and through our #IAmBeingMe video we hope to open minds, hearts & change opinions. Because being who you truly are, is so incredibly important.

Familiar faces in the video: Jodie Marsh, Trent Owers, Luke Shayler, Kellie Maloney, Musharaf Asghar, Molly Rainford, Mark Ferris.
