LGBT History Month

Posted on by tates

We started off with a lively discussion about LGBT rights and we were really impressed with how informed the children were and how maturely they discussed all the issues. As the focus of this year’s LGBT History month is Art, we watched a short film about the pioneering artist Doris Hatt and learnt about how she stood up to prejudice – the children all commented on how brave she was and felt she was an excellent role model for the gay community. They just felt that it was a great shame her achievements were only truly recognised after her death. We have included a couple of photos to show the posters we designed about Doris and examples of some badges we created to celebrate LGBT History month.
