LGBTQ+ Histories

Our ‘Curriculum Topics’ use the phrasing of the National Curriculum to help you find content that can be used to teach each individual module. Our taught sessions and online resources cover a variety of time periods and places. Many contain structured investigations for use directly in the classroom. Others are more suited for research and preparation. They all allow access into our unique collections.
