Olly Alexander, lead singer of Years and Years, will speak at this year’s National Student Pride in London.

The Take Shelter singer will debate sex and relationships education in British schools on Saturday 25 February.

The event takes place at University of Westminster’s Marylebone Campus.

Of course, Olly has always been outspoken on the subject of sexuality. Last year, he even penned a sex-positive essay about the band’s super hot video for Desire. You can watch the clip at the bottom of this page.

Student Pride takes place from 24-26 February.

It’s centered around a free daytime event at Marylebone Campus.

In addition, there will be on-stage discussions, film screenings, a careers fair, and also numerous club nights across the capital. For a full rundown of activities and tickets, click here.

What’s more, it was recently revealed that drag star Katya Zamolodchikova [above] will host the Pride talent show.

Olly, 26, will be joined in the panel by four other notable LGBTI spokespeople.

They are Attitude editor Cliff Joannou, pop star Sarah Nimmo, Deborah Gold, Chief Executive of the National Aids Trust, plus Lexi Jean Munroe of the Albert Kennedy Trust.

National Student Pride spokesperson Charlie-Ann Mathers also commented: ‘Olly is such a bae, I’m so excited to have him at the event. I just know it will bring so much important attention to Sex and Relationships education.’

She furthermore added: ‘Speaking to students in the build up to the event has shown how important it is that they finally get the SRE they deserve.’
