Education Resources

Each academic term, we write a new LGBT-positive resource that can be delivered as an assembly, or in tutor time, as part of a lesson or youth work session. Usually themed around an upcoming date or event, these simple and easy to use PowerPoints or resources help you keep LGBT+ identities on the agenda, LGBT+ lives visible.

For LGBT History Month each February, a more comprehensive set of lesson or session plans are produced. Find this years, and previous years packs, free to download, here.

To have all of these resources drop straight into your inbox the minute they become available, sign up here.


Anti-Bullying Week - November 2017

Being marked 13-17 November in 2017, The Anti-Bullying Alliance is using the theme "All Different, All Equal" for Anti-Bullying Week this year. We have created a simple to use PowerPoint for you to explore whether we are in fact "All Equal". Recognising and celebrating our differences can help us a long way into really achieving true, and real, equality.

BiVisibility Day - 23 September 2016

For the autumn 2016 term, our free resources for schools and youth clubs take a focus on bisexuality for BiVisibility Day on 23 September. Why is a BiVisibility day needed? Sometimes we can make the mistake of incorrect assumptions about a person's sexual orientation based on their current partner... Bisexual people may face biphobia from within and from outside of the LGBT community at large. This easy to use PowerPoint resource will enable you to work with your groups and explore the issues that our bisexual friends might face.

What Is Your Pronoun – IDAHO 2016

This year, the theme of IDAHOBIT is “Mental Health and Well Being”. Our free termly resource focuses on something very simple – the use of pronouns. Your pronoun is the way in which you refer to yourself, often relating to the way you experience your gender. Common pronouns include “he/him”, ”she/her” and “they/them”.

In our society, unfortunately, a person’s pronoun tends to be assumed. Assumptions can be very dangerous!

“What is your pronoun?” – a very easy question to ask.

Harvey Milk Day 2015

During February – LGBT History Month – we had the pleasure of hosting Stuart Milk – nephew of Harvey – as he visited some of our partner schools and delivered inspirational speeches about the legacy of his uncle’s work. During this process we were amazed and surprised just how many people had not heard of Harvey Milk…

Harvey Milk’s story is not only one worth hearing, it is one worth telling.
