The Pink Promotion!
Wear a pink item of clothing on the Monday 18th November To commemorate the 10th anniversary of the repeal of Section 28, the law which banned the ‘promotion’ and ‘publication’ of anything supporting a LGBT ‘pretend lifestyle’ we would like everyone in the UK to wear pink, the symbol of diversity.
We want all UK schools to go pink against prejudice on that day, and teachers to teach just one lesson from our free National Curriculum-linked lesson-plan site The Classroom. We want teachers to be usualising and actualising LGBT people for every age and in any subject. This is a chance for teachers to celebrate diversity and to send out the clear message to every country where similar or even harsher laws are still in place, from every classroom in Britain – Clause 28: Never Again.
Let us know your thoughts and feelings on 10 years since 28, and send us your photographs of yourselves in pink:
