The dreadful events in Orlando are a reminder that there is still a need to tackle homophobia in society. Education has an important part to play in that. The EIS has an active LGBT Network which meets 2-3 times per year, creating opportunities for discussion of LGBT issues affecting both teachers and pupils.

The Network has a new flyer and you can also get advice and support on LGBT issues from your local Equality Rep.

There are lots of organisations in Scotland which offer resources and CPD on LGBT inclusion as well as information for teachers, please see:-

 LGBT Youth
