GarethMarshall2016“The inspiration behind the badge design came from the phrase “leap of faith”. I chose this phrase because I believe It is a very powerful, and personal message. It is about believing and having faith. both in one’s religion, and in oneself. It represents a risk we take for a better outcome and future, a push forward in acceptance and tolerance within and towards to LGBT community, and the strength it can take to come out as a homosexual, bisexual or trans person.” – Gareth Marshall, 2016 Badge Designer, University of Bedfordshire


Further resources


Proud Trust Resource LGBTHM16The Proud Trust has teamed up with Schools OUT UK to bring you this free LGBT History Month Pack for February 2016. The theme of History Month is ‘Religion, Belief and Philosophy: A Leap of Faith’.
The pack is full of handy session plans, ideas and a useful FAQs section. Click the link below to access:



February is LGBT History Month

Its celebration is a great opportunity to embed LGBT lives and issues within the curriculum along with equipping teachers and students with strategies to deal with discriminatory behaviour.  The paucity of  LGBT teaching resources and materials for adults in Further Education, especially for ESOL (English to Speakers of Other Languages) could hinder the development of a more inclusive curriculum offer.

This blog offers some ready made , easy to download lesson plans and teaching resources along with links to useful organisations and research.

TrueTubeLast year, we produced a short documentary called ‘Katie’. Katie is a nurse on a children’s ward and a practicing Christian in the Roman Catholic Church. She is also gay. She talks honestly and movingly about how she struggled to reconcile her faith with her feelings, and about the welcome she eventually found in the church community. She represents a much wider community of people who identify as being both gay and religious. Her film can be seen here:

Founder of Europe’s first LGBT-friendly mosque says being gay and Muslim is ‘like deciding which arm to cut off’

“It has nothing to do with Islam as spirituality, because our tradition is much more peaceful in terms of dealing with sexuality and gender identity.”
