Out in the Open

2016, 60 pages

Violence in schools and other educational settings is a global problem, and students who are perceived not to conform to prevailing sexual and gender norms, including those who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or intersex (LGBTI), are more vulnerable.

This global report from UNESCO focuses on the nature, scope and impact of violence based on sexual orientation and gender identity/expression in educational settings, and of current actions. It provides education-sector stakeholders with a framework for planning and implementing effective responses to this type of school-related gender-based violence, as part of wider efforts to prevent and address violence in schools.

GALE school toolkit2011, 98 pages.

GALE Toolkit Working with Schools 1.0. Tools for school consultants, principals, teachers, students and parents to integrate adequate attention of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender topics in curricula and school policies.

Until now, it is very rare to see mainstream organizations focus on LGBT issues in schools. Most initiatives to improve our schools are initiated by LGBT grass roots organizations or professional organizations which are rooted in the LGBT movements. That is why this version of the toolkit focuses in part on suggestions for activist organizations on how to access schools. However, just 'dropping' information and model curricula in schools and hoping school will use them, usually does not work. To make sure the tools for schools are tuned into the needs and possibilities of a school, and of an adequate quality to ensure a significant effect, we need to work with the schools themselves. It is this LGBT & straight collaboration we are focusing with in this toolkit.


The toolkit has five parts:
1. Project implementation tools
2. Tools for managers and authorities
3. Tools for staff
4. Tools for students
5. Tools for parents

Every day, students around the world are denied the basic right to education because of bullying in school. Bullying particularly affects students who are perceived as not conforming to prevailing sexual and gender norms, including those who are believed to be lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender (LGBT). On the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia (IDAHO), 17 May 2012, UNESCO Bangkok has produced a short film highlighting the challenges faced by LGBT students and practical steps that have been taken in schools in Thailand to promote healthy, safe learning environments for all.

GALE

In 2012, Global Alliance for LGBT Education (GALE) published a guide to advocate for sexual diversity education. The guide is a 40 page brochure, which offers guidelines on how to analyse the education context in your country, and helps advocacy organisations to make informed decisions on what national strategy would be most helpful to make education more inclusive for LGBT people.
