Pride parades in virtual reality #prideforeveryone

About this discussion plan: This guide that brings Pride Parades from across the globe to life in virtual reality and helps students gain an understanding of the difficulties that LGBTQ individuals face in their schools and communities.

Considerable strides have been made in the lives of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Questioning (LGBTQ) community with continued Pride parades across the globe. Although there has been progress for LGBTQ equality, there are still many obstacles to overcome. In this journey, the growth of heterosexual allies has created positive change in culture and improved the environment in which LGBTQ people live.

This interactive lesson pays tribute to the rich pride parades created by LGBTQ people around the world. You will be able to see and virtually visit Pride Parades from around the world in 360 view and virtual reality.

As the LGBTQ community celebrates the many advancements, we remember those who ended their lives rooted in homophobia and the rejection by family, friends and others. On behalf of Broome Street Academy Charter High School, I hope you will find the contents of this interactive lesson helpful, informative and invigorating.

Thank you,

LGBT History Month assembly

February is LGBT History Month. Through the questions, issues and ideas raised in a selection of films this assembly supports young people to discuss the impact and limitations of the 1967 Sexual Offences Act as the first step on the continuing journey towards equal rights for LGBT people. The resource is primarily for use as an assembly, but can be adapted for use in a lesson or Into Film Club session, and contains some suggested activities to take learning further. The presentation contains clips and stimulus questions from The Imitation Game (2014, 12), Rebel Without a Cause (1955, PG), Victim (1961, 12), Pride (2014, 15) and G.B.F (2013, 15), interviews with the cast of Pride, youth made short Proud and stimulus questions and discussion points to enable students to analyse these films within the context of the LGBT History Month 2017 themes.

LGBT Primary Assembly KS2: Different Families & Love

This Assembly for KS2 explores diversity and different families and how all families have love in common.

A video produced by Ad Council entitled ‘Love has No Labels’ explores how there are many different types of love, for example between siblings, between friends, and between parents and their children. It shows a range of sexualities, religions, disabilities, ages and ethnicities to highlight the diversity of our world. The message of the video is that although people may be different we all have love in common.

Through exploring images of different types of love such as friendships, romantic love and love for family, students identify same sex couples and families, single-parent families and families without children. Although all families are different they all, again, have love in common.

Students then compare two images, one of a heterosexual family without children and one of a same-sex couple with a child drawing out the differences but also the similarities.

Pupils end the assembly by coming up with their own definition on love. This can be extended to a school challenge in which pupils draw their own definition of what love means to them that can be made into a display or shared in classes and future assemblies.

The assembly is perfect for LGBT History Month, Pride, Anti-Bullying Week and the International Day Against Homophobia Biphobia and Transphobia.

The assembly is suitable for KS2 and can be easily differentiated by introducing more advanced terminology in the discussions. The assembly supports work on SMSC, British Values, RSE, PSHE and helps schools meet their Ofsted and statutory obligations.

*Diversity Role Models are a registered charity that actively seeks to embed inclusion and empathy in the next generation. Our vision is an inclusive education system where all students feel accepted, supported and encouraged to be themselves and thrive. This will help create a world where future generations embrace, accept and support difference.

*We create safe spaces where young people can explore difference and consider their role in creating a wold where all feel accepted. Our student workshops feature positive LGBT+ or ally role models who speak openly about their lived experience, building young people’s empathy so they can understand the impact of their language and actions. In order to ensure sustained change we supplement this by training school staff, governors, parents and carers.
