Youth Workers | The Proud Trust

Practitioners from all over the UK who deliver LGBT Awareness  and Education in schools got together in Lancaster Library in November 2012 to share their experience and knowledge.

All the information shared on the day has been pulled together to create this Best Practice Guide – yours to download for free!

Sections include strategies for getting into schools, being prepared for the things you might be asked, examples of best practice and useful web links.

Word Match Activity – a resource taken from the Western Oregan University matching LGBT words to their definitions can be found here.

Coinciding nicely with this activity is a new resource from BrookLearn Your LGBT ABC. This booklet comprehensively covers a whole alphabet of terms for sexuality and gender. It aims to show that there is a lot more than just LGBT and that people don’t have to fit into a specific ‘box’. It is the only LGBT information source of it’s kind; written for young people, by young people.

Animation Showreel – how about showing these  ”Coming Out” animations to young people you are working with? A great opportunity to explore the positive and negative aspects in each – what could young people do to make Coming Out easier for their friends?
