Museum of London celebrates LGBT History Month

On Sunday 7 February the Museum of London and Schools OUT UK are hosting a day to celebrate LGBT History Month for teachers and families.

An exciting line-up of readings from children and young adult books by well-known authors and LGBT activists including Sir Derek Jacobi, Stuart Milk, Juno Dawson and Bonnie Greer will be taking place throughout the day alongside free drop-in activities for families.

The day of free events will provide teachers with new ideas on how to include LGBT perspectives in their teaching and information on best practice around inclusivity in the classroom.

Sarah Castle, Learning Programme Manager at the Museum of London, said: “Having Stuart Milk, Sir Derek Jacobi, Juno Dawson and Bonnie Greer at the museum performing book readings is a real treat and highlights the importance of making sure LGBT History Month is celebrated and that schools in particular are empowered to be as inclusive as possible. This day of events offers teachers and families a fantastic opportunity to come together and improve understanding so that LGBT families and pupils are recognised, listened to and reflected in lesson plans and resources.

To end the day there will be a performance from the London Gay Men’s Chorus in the museum’s foyer.
The day’s events are free but pre-booking is required. For further details and to pre-book, please visit http://www.museumoflondon.org.uk/lgbt-festival
