The Corner celebrates LGBT History Month

MAIN The Corner celebrates LGBT History MonthThe Corner has launched a new campaign as part of LGBT History Month.

The ‘History, Her Story, Our Story, Your Story’ campaign will see the rainbow flag used to highlight difference aspects of the LGBT movement and promote a message of tolerance, respect and inclusiveness amongst all young people, not just those who may identify as LGBT.

Messages will be shared through the service’s drop-in, outreach workshops, social media sites and school-based sessions using interactive activities, resources and literature.

The finale of the campaign will see staff from The Corner take part in Purple Friday on 23 February, with an information stall at Ninewells and a purple theme to the city centre drop-in service. Purple Friday is a day for people across Scotland to show support for LGBT people and stand against homophobia, biphobia and transphobia.

The new campaign follows on from The Corner Culture of Kindness project launched during national Anti-Bullying Week in November which aimed to address issues young people face around bullying and promote anti-bullying messages.
