Into the Outside Resource: Family & Relationships

Many of the stories and much of the artwork contributed by young people to Into the Outside touches on issues with relationships of one kind or another – either with family, or other significant relationships.

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.

Family and relationships

Many of the stories and much of the artwork contributed by young people to Into the Outside touches on issues with relationships of one kind or another – either with family, or other significant relationships. The activities here foster understanding of complex personal relationships, and the impact of difficult relationships, as well as help young people to navigate and manage family dynamics.
