Why not explore our word of the day:Biromantic
Lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans people exist in our world, exist in our families and therefore, should also be present in our children’s education. The LGBT+ young people that we work with in our youth groups consistently tell us, that at no point during their growing up, were LGBT+ people ever visible, ever discussed. This then meant that they lacked the language and terminology to help them understand and describe who they are.
Inspired by the experiences of our LGBT+ young people, we have created a number of pioneering, engaging and fun educational resources to enable conversations that usualise the existence of LGBT+ people and, importantly, help de-stigmatise the language and words being used.
LGBT+ education should be positively framed (i.e. not always through a lens of bullying) and should be done in two ways:
- Specific – education that usually happens within PSHE, where LGBT+ identities are being directly taught about. This can be achieved in KS2 with our Happily Ever After and Alien Nation resources.
- Inclusive – where LGBT+ people and experiences are being made more visible and usual by sprinkling them as examples across the wider school curriculum. This can be achieved in KS1 and KS2 using the Rainbow Flag Award Classroom resources.
