Overview

We are a group of LGBT+ young people who want to plan a conference on the 21st May 2018
The theme for the conference is education and looking at the progress we have made since the repeal of Section 28 in 2003.   

Local Government Act 1988 - Section 28:

“A local authority shall not intentionally promote homosexuality or publish material with the intention of promoting homosexuality, a local authority shall not promote the teaching in any maintained school of the acceptability of homosexuality as a pretended family relationship.”

Repealed:

On Thursday 18 September 2003 the Local Government Bill received Royal Assent as the Local Government Act 2003 and Section 28 was finally taken off the statute books.

We would really like you to come along and listen to our findings and hear our views on education for LGBT+ Young People  in Bristol.
Our aim is to put forward a guide for teachers and educators when they need to support the LGBT+ pupils in their schools.
We hope the outcome for this conference will be that all schools and education facilities have adequate support in place to not only, challenge homophobia, biphobia and transphobia in the class room, but to do so effectively and confidently.
So we want to make a change for the better and for positive experiences of LGBT+ Young People  in school.
 

Why We Are Consulting

We believe it should be compulsory to include LGBT+ information and concerns in the PHSE lessons and recognise there are no longer any policies or laws preventing this.  So we want to make a change for the better and for positive experiences of LGBT+ Young People in school.

What Happens Next

following the consultation, we plan to produce a guide for teachers to use in school /colleges as a tool for effective challenging of homophobic, biphobic,transphobic discrimination.
