LGBT+ History Month: assembly resources
February is LGBT+ History Month. Use these assembly resources to help you talk to your pupils about the experiences of people who are LGBTQ+, and to support your relationships and sex education (RSE) curriculum.
LGBT+ History Month is a great opportunity to raise awareness and spark discussion about LGBTQ+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning and other sexual identities) issues and inclusivity with a themed assembly.
Before using these resources, consider whether they're suitable for your school's curriculum, the age of the pupils in the assembly and any withdrawal of parental permission around sex education for particular pupils.
