BIRMINGHAM SCHOOLS LGBT HISTORY MONTH SHOWCASE 15th February 2013

 

 

Birmingham’s very first ‘Educate and Celebrate’ showcase in celebration of LGBT History Month will take place in The Library Theatre on Friday February 15th 6.30-8.30pm.

 

In September 2012 Elly Barnes Pink List No: 1 was appointed as Birmingham’s LGBT schools advisor with a view to educating young people through the curriculum about the achievements of LGBT people in history and eradicate homophobic language and bullying from our schools.

 

The concert will showcase student’s work from 20 participating schools, including music and drama performances, presentations, speeches, stalls and key speakers. LGBT service providers in the city will be supporting including LGBT Birmingham, Youth Services, the LGBT network at Birmingham City Council and Rainbow voices. Key speakers will include Birmingham Council cabinet members and local celebrities.

 

The showcase welcomes everyone to attend to see our Birmingham schools in action! Tickets can be reserved on ‘Eventbrite’ (link)

Adults £5, children and concessions £3.  All proceeds go to funding further projects in our schools to eradicate homophobia.

 

Participating schools include Cockshut Hill Technology College, Turves Green Girls School, Lindsworth School, Perry Beeches Academy, Ninestiles Academy, Parkfield community school, Grestone Primary School and Saltley School.

 

"Educating through the curriculum is key to creating an enlightened environment in which our teachers and students can thrive and be who they want to be without fear of discrimination" Elly Barnes
