LGBT History Month – the national launch

16 November 2017 by Matt

Professor Sue Sanders of Schools Out and LGBT History Month.

On 8 November the Museum of Liverpool had the honour of hosting the national launch of LGBT History Month which will take place in February 2018. The theme for the month long celebration is Geography: Mapping the World and with fabulous views across the River Mersey and Liverpool’s south docks the location was perfect.

The event started with a teacher’s seminar, led by Professor Sue Sanders from Schools OUT UK and LGBT History Month and was a chance for local teachers to explore how they can address LGBT+ issues, stories, and history better in schools. It was also a chance for us at the Museum of Liverpool to showcase our LGBT+ resources and to launch our new LGBT+ awareness session on language and law for Key Stage 3+ groups.

Speakers included representatives from National Museums Liverpool, Homotopia, Liverpool Pride, GYRO, Writing on the Wall, Schools OUT UK and special messages from Daniel Carden MP and Justine Greening MP, the Minister for Education and Equalities.  Read more…
