The following videos and resource pack will help students develop their thinking about LGBT rights, equality and legislation.

Peter and Geoff’s story explores life before the 1967 Sexual Offences Act and how the Act has helped to change the lives of many LGBTQ+ people for the better. In their story, Nadine and Tia share their experience of the repeal of Section 28 as a result of the 2003 Local Government Act, and the role this played in shaping their identity as queer women of colour.

The resource pack includes:

  • Background information about the videos
  • Questions to consider and discuss
  • Glossary of legislation
