Asexual Awareness Week – October 2019

How often do we explore the complexities of attraction? How often have you explored the topic of asexuality with young people? Asexuality is not a new concept, but it is becoming a more visible set of identities. In a world where there is pressure on young people to be active sexual beings, how about we validate the experiences of those that have no desire to be sexual, and who experience little, or no, sexual attraction to others…? A simple and easy to use resource, making asexuality more visible, and valid, making the world of difference to someone you work with or know.

Summer of 1969 Stonewall Riots – IDAHOBIT 2019

Some events in history are very well documented, others not so much. In the summer of 1969, no doubt the news pages were full of stories of the moon landings. Lesser documented, however, in the June of 1969, a group of LGBT+ people stood up to unfair treatment they were receiving, and an uprising occurred. The Stonewall Riots in the summer of 1969 were the precursor of what we know today as Pride events. The brave actions of a few, changed the course of history for many, forever.

Faith in Yourself – Inter Faith Week November 2018

Young people tell us that often people assume that you can’t be both religious and LGBT+. For Inter Faith Week (11th – 18th November) we invite you to listen the voices of LGBT+ people of faith, and think about how you can be supportive friends and allies. This term’s PowerPoint takes young people’s testimonies from our Faith In Yourself resource, to explore faith perspectives on being LGBT+ and how we can understand, respect and show kindness to others, especially when we might share different beliefs.

Find the Faith in Yourself resources here.

What Is The Problem With Football? – IDAHOBIT 2018

Given that 2018 is a World Cup year, our resource for International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia (IDAHOBIT, 17 May) takes a look at the world of football. Why is it that there are no “out” gay or bisexual men in the professional game? Why is the same not true of the women’s game, or many other sports? How can this be compared to what is happening in other parts of society, such as schools? Ultimately, we ask everyone to take a role in creating inclusive and safe spaces, for everybody.

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.
