June is Pride Month. It is so important because it marks the start of huge change within the LGBTQ community, as well as the wider societal implications.
Although injustice still remain, the LGBTQ community has come a long way since the riots of 1969 and it’s very important to continue in this long standing tradition to raise awareness, improve the attitudes of society and encourage inclusiveness.
In a world first, Scottish schools in 2021 will be required to put LGBTQ history on the curriculum, after the country’s ministers accepted the full recommendations of the Time for Inclusive Education (TIE) campaign.
Students will learn about the history of LGBTQ equality, how to tackle homophobia and transphobia, and the nuances of LGBTQ identity, in all its forms.
