About LGBT History Month

LGBT HM is celebrated in February in the UK but our work to educate out prejudice continues throughout the year. Our interactive calendar is also all-year-round so check it out or add an LGBT related event of your own.

This year our theme was Religion, Belief and Philosophy. LGBT History Month 2016 is over now but we hope we have enabled the faiths to foster good relations with their LGBT congregants and with the wider LGBT community. In 2017 we will look at Citizenship, PSHE and Law as we mark the 50th anniversary of the partial decriminalisation of male homosexuality in England and Wales.

Our academic festival  in Manchester and popular festivals in Newcastle, York, Manchester, Shrewsbury, Bristol and London were immensely successful and we hope they will put LGBT Hsitory on the map and  in the history books.

Schools OUT UK is a Charitable Incorporated Organisation that began life as The Gay Teachers Association in 1974. Our overarching goal is to make our schools and educational institutions safe spaces for our Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans (LGBT) communities as teachers, lecturers and trainers; as pupils and students; as parents; as teaching and learning support staff; as site-officers, catering and cleaning staff; and as headteachers, managers and governors. There is no other organisation that supports such a wide community in attaining such a wide, yet simple overarching goal. See our website for more news and resources for educators www.schools-out.org.uk

The Classroom The Classroom is an accessible space for teachers to find a range of resources to make Lesbian Gay Bisexual Trans people visible in education. We believe that to eradicate homophobia and transphobia, the lives and contributions of LGBT people need to be visible throughout education. This can be done by delivering a broad and balanced curriculum. See our website for more information and lesson plans at www.the-classroom.org.uk
