Every organisation has a duty to make LGBT people’s identities visible and affirmed.

An easy way to do this is to ‘usualise’ people’s identities through routine monitoring forms.

See here for an easy guide to inclusive monitoring.

See the-classroom website for more info on usualising.

We wanted to remind people that our Black History Month Challenging Prejudice and Uniting Communities resource isn’t just for use in October, its a resource to use all year round – whether that’s with students, young people, staff, friends – it’s always relevant to be aware of prejudice and how to challenge it. The activities included are simple to run but cover complex and important issues. You can download it for free by clicking here.

When: Sunday 27th November, 2pm
Length: 1 hour
What: This walking tour will tell the story of how Manchester became the first place to build an entirely publicly funded, purpose designed centre for the gay community, just as Thatcher’s government were enacting Section 28.
Meet: Please meet at Manchester Town Hall side entrance, on Lloyd Street (as the xmas markets are on). I will be waving a small rainbow flag! Please note it will end at the LGBT Centre on Sidney Street, just off Oxford Road.
