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 2020
Theme: Poetry Prose and Plays
We are thrilled to bring you the LGBT+ History Month Resource and Education Pack for 2020, in conjunction with Schools OUT UK. This year, the whole of LGBT+ History Month has been dedicated to Lyra McKee, the journalist and LGBT+ activist who was shot dead during rioting in Northern Ireland in 2019. With that in mind, we’re grateful to Sara Canning, Lyra’s partner at the time of her death, for writing the foreword to this years pack.
The theme this year of Poetry, Prose and Plays provides us with rich pickings in terms of activities for young people. We hope you will enjoy delivering the four sessions, one on terminology, then one of each of poetry, prose and plays. This pack will help you bring LGBT+ awareness into your youth groups or classrooms, and could be delivered as part of PSHE, english, drama or history!
Also included in this years download package is a very fun “Queering Cinderella” assembly or tutor time PowerPoint activity – enjoy!
Please note, if you have an issue downloading this resource, it could be down to your schools firewall settings. If you download it outside of your workplace, you shouldn’t experience any issues.
LGBT History Month 2019
Theme: “Peace, Reconciliation and Activism”
The 2019 theme was of such great importance, enabling an exploration of LGBT+ activism in the year that marked 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! This years pack has been quality assured by the PSHE Association.
We have also made a simple PowerPoint for you to introduce LGBT History Month 2018:
