Schools OUT UK is Now a Charity!

We are delighted to announce that Schools OUT UK is now a Charitable Incorporated Organisation after 40 years of campaigning for LGBT people in education!

Henceforth we shall work under the generic title LGBT History Month with a new logo and website; lgbthistorymonth.org.uk. This website and The Classroom will be incorporated into the new website.

This is a long term project so please bear with us while we move our materials over to the new site; and if you can’t find what you are looking for please don’t hesitate to contact us.
