LGBT History Month
1 February - 1 March

February is LGBT History Month. Through the questions, issues and ideas raised in a selection of films this assembly supports young people to discuss the impact and limitations of the 1967 Sexual Offences Act as the first step on the continuing journey towards equal rights for LGBT people. The resource is primarily for use as an assembly, but can be adapted for use in a lesson or Into Film Club session, and contains some suggested activities to take learning further. The presentation contains clips and stimulus questions from The Imitation Game (2014, 12), Rebel Without a Cause (1955, PG), Victim (1961, 12), Pride (2014, 15) and G.B.F (2013, 15), interviews with the cast of Pride and stimulus questions and discussion points to enable students to analyse these films within the context of the LGBT History Month 2017 themes.

"The Filmmaking Guides have been invaluable in helping novice filmmakers, from ensuring their story is well told, to thinking about light, camera angles and editing."
