Bryanston celebrates Diversity and Inclusion during LGBT+ History Month 2023
Bryanston is proud to recognise LGBT+ History Month, a month-long celebration that commemorates the rich history of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community. This annual event promotes equality, diversity, and inclusivity, and is a time to reflect on the progress that has been made in advancing the rights of LGBT+ individuals.
To mark this important occasion, we organised a series of exciting initiatives with the aim of encouraging open discussion and exploration of identities, while also celebrating the achievements and contributions of the LGBT+ community.
Some of the initiatives that the school has introduced to celebrate LGBT+ History Month 2023 throughout February, include:
- House Assembly Talks: Pupils have the opportunity to learn about notable LGBT+ figures from the past, starting with Lili Elbe, the inspiration behind the movie ‘The Danish Girl’.
- Film Nights: Pupils have the chance to watch films that celebrate LGBT+ identity and culture, with recommendations provided by the Houseparents.
- LGBT+ Club: An inclusive weekly club open to all pupils, where we come together to discuss LGBT+ topics and explore identities.
- BryRadio: A special interview with EDI Lead Oliver Nicholson and Xander B, discussing important LGBT+ matters.
- Study of Nisus and Euryalus: In Classics, pupils are studying the story of Nisus and Euryalus from ‘The Aeneid’, a tale of an ancient Trojan same-sex couple who were committed, inseparable, and brave warriors.
- New Library Collection: The Library has added a new selection of LGBT+ books, giving pupils access to a diverse range of perspectives and experiences.
In addition, the Pride flag can be seen on the front lawn of Bryanston on Google Earth, acknowledging the School's commitment to promoting equality and inclusion.
Bryanston is proud to support and celebrate LGBT+ History Month, and is committed to creating a safe, inclusive, and welcoming environment for all pupils and staff, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity.
