In the UK we dedicate October to exploring and learning about the rich history of Black peoples and communities; a section of history that is often overlooked, mis-represented and poorly documented, much like February where we dedicate the month to exploring and uncovering lost and hidden LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans*) histories. There has been little cross over between the two months, leaving untouched a huge gap in the history that we are learning and teaching about.
We are very proud to launch our brand new, easy to use, education pack that really helps you explore the intersections between different minority groups. Throughout the pack you will come across and learn about a diverse group of Black LGBT people, past and present from a range of backgrounds and professions. The pack is made up of a series of bitesize activities that can be used during youth groups, classroom lessons or tutor times, each carefully designed to enable you to facilitate a great discussion!
The full pack can be found here:
