LGBT History Month is celebrated in February in the UK. Each year, The Proud Trust teams up with Schools OUT UK and LGBT History Month to write a simple, easy to use, education and resource pack. Free to download on this page, we also have a limited number of printed packs available to buy through our online shop each year.
LGBT History Month 2019
Theme: “Peace, Reconciliation and Activism”
We are absolutely thrilled to bring you the LGBT History Month Resource and Education Pack for 2019, in conjunction with Schools OUT UK. The theme this year is of such great importance, exploring LGBT+ activism in the year marking 50 years since the Stonewall Riots, a pivotal moment in LGBT+ rights and history. It is crucial that the struggles and fights of others, to give us the lives we have today, are recognised. It is also so important that we understand the fights that are still continuing to happen, and still need to happen, to give folk liberation and peace.
Our thanks are extended to Phyll Opoku-Gyimah, founder of UK Black Pride, who has kindly written the thought provoking foreword to this years pack.
This four session pack will help you bring LGBT+ awareness into your youth groups or classrooms, and could be delivered as part of PSHE or history!
LGBT History Month 2018
Theme: “Geography: Mapping Our World”
We’re thrilled to bring you the LGBT History Month Resource and Education Pack for 2018, in conjunction with Schools OUT UK. We’re also delighted that Stuart Milk, nephew of Harvey, co-founder of Harvey Milk Foundation and international LGBT rights campaigner, has also contributed, by writing the foreword.
This three session pack will help you bring LGBT+ awareness into your youth groups or classrooms, and could be delivered as part of PSHE, history or geography!
We have also made a simple PowerPoint for you to introduce LGBT History Month 2018:
LGBT History Month 2017
Theme: “Citizenship, PSHE and Law”
The Proud Trust teamed up with The People’s History Museum to bring you the LGBT History Month Pack for 2017.
This easy to use, three lesson pack, will guide you and your students through an exploration of LGBT history and changes to law in the UK, as well as having a look at the situation for LGBT people across Europe. The pack will also get young people thinking about what changes still need to happen and about the types of things they can do, to raise awareness of this.
We have also prepared this simple and easy to use PowerPoint presentation for you to introduce LGBT History Month 2017 as an assembly or during tutor time.
