After a successful Raise your Rainbow day in support of York Pride last June and an LGBT-themed National Anti-Bullying Week in November, Millthorpe will be recognising LGBT History Month at the start of February.
Students will have a launch assembly showing them places around York that have LGBT historical roots and a follow up lesson where they will be invited to take part in Outword Bound, an LGBT History Month writing competition.
A set of posters, shown below, will be displayed around school to recognise figures from the past who made significant achievements in their respective fields as well as being a part of the LGBT community.
Events will be taking place all around York in February to celebrate LGBT History Month. Visit yorklgbthistory.org.uk for more information.
