Into the Outside: resources for teachers and youth workers
As part of this project a series of education resources were developed that offer guidance, advice and ideas for professionals working with young people who want to raise awareness of and explore LGBTQ+ issues.
The activities are suitable for youth workers and teachers working in a range of settings with young people aged 13+. They can be used to support professionals running LGBTQ+ youth groups, delivery of the Citizenship or PSHE Curriculum in school, or for general youth work.
There are nine resources organised under relevant themes that draw on the first hand experience of the young people who have contributed their voices and personal artwork to our queer youth archive. Alongside this, activities also make use of the rich and engaging heritage material collected by Queer in Brighton, encouraging young people to explore LGBTQ+ history.
Each resource includes a series of high-quality, creative activities using discussion, photography and creative writing. You can find these resources on the Into the Outside website here or download an easy to print version below.
Acceptance is a global issue that affects all kinds of people from cultures and backgrounds around the world. Accepting others’ choices – recognising and coming to terms with a situation without trying to protest or change it is very much about one’s ability to understand and empathise. Self acceptance is something most young people grapple with, and for any young person who feels that they don’t fit societal norms, self acceptance and being accepted by others can feel like a massive challenge.
