This group of students are heavily involved in activities for marking LGBT+ History Month this February, including making and distributed rainbow ribbons badges to staff and students alike and making displays to be put up around College to raise awareness.

Posters have gone up around College this month highlighting well known LGBT+ icons from the worlds of Academia, Literature, Music, Film and Television from both past and present.

A Rainbow flag has also gone up at the College and students have been encouraged to take selfies in front of this flag to show their support for LGBT+ History Month. A special hashtag – #SFCSsupportsLGBT – is also being used for this campaign.

Sonia Wood, Assistant Principal responsible for Equality & Diversity at the College, commented:

“The LGBT Society and our Student Development Intern have been instrumental in making LGBT+ History Month such a success at the College. Staff and students can’t fail to have seen the information around College about it and this has helped to raise awareness.”
