High School is a time when children are often discovering who they are.
Unfortunately this sometimes takes place amongst a backdrop of anxiety and bullying.
Rainbow Teaching is a new website with resources that aim to help teachers tackle issues about being lesbian, gay, bisexual or trans.
Under the Rainbow spoke to the website’s founder and project leader, Allie George. They said that teachers often don’t get much support on LGBT issues.
February is Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans History Month.
On Monday, Jeff Evans from the teacher’s organisation School’s Out officially opened the month in Stockport.
He gave a talk and a lesson on LGBT history.
Under the Rainbow went along to speak to some of those who attended the event. And the evening seemed to have provoked some memories.
