Article: ‘”Ping! Gay people!” – or, why we need more LGBT history in schools’

Ynda Jas2015, Articles3 Comments

Assistant Coordinator Kit Heyam recently published “Ping! Gay people!” – or, why we need more LGBT history in schools on their blog ‘unbeseeming words’. The article emphasises the importance of LGBT History Month in schools, and, beyond that, the inclusion of LGBT narratives (or LGBT voices in narratives already covered) in the teaching of history more widely.

If you are interested in getting involved in schools outreach work for York LGBT History Month 2015, get in contact with Kit (kit@yorklgbthistory.org.uk) and/or Trudi Jackson (trudi@yorklgbthistory.org.uk).

Ynda created York LGBTQ+ History Month in 2014 while working at York St John University. They then developed it into an independent organisation, and served as Lead Coordinator from 2014 to 2016, which included overseeing its registration as a charity. They remain loosely involved from a distance, mostly helping with web updates. During their seven years in York, Ynda also studied at both of York’s universities and served periods as secretary of York Pride and York LGBT Forum. They also founded Non-binary London and are the DJ coordinator at the queer cabaret event and community Bar Wotever at the Royal Vauxhall Tavern.
