The Proud Trust are thrilled to bring you the LGBT+ History Month Resource and Education Pack for 2022, in conjunction with Schools OUT UK.
This year’s theme “The Arc is Long” is inspired by a Martin Luther King quote:
‘The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends towards justice.’
The quote is thought to mean that although it is taking a long time, we are curving/moving towards social justice and fairness.
This theme provides us with the opportunity to explore the idea of social justice and changing attitudes towards LGBT+ people. While we have come a long way in terms of inclusion and attitudes towards same gender relationships and equal marriage, there is still a great deal of work that can happen in terms of positive trans (including non-binary) representation and inclusion.
