Celebrating Best Practice: Towards an LGBTQ+ Inclusive Curriculum - Tuesday 6th February, 12pm
Dr Gale (Birmingham University) shares top tips on creating a teaching environment which all students - regardless of gender identity or sexual orientation - can thrive.

Dr Nicola Gale co-leads a team that has produced a best practice guide on LGBTQ-inclusive curricula. She will share her insights and top tips about making the curriculum more inclusive including :
• Terminology relating to gender and sexuality
• An LGBTQ-inclusive ‘framework’ and exploration of different ‘depths’ of inclusivity
• Subject-discipline specific guidance (examining how LGBTQ inclusion might vary between e.g. Arts and Humanities, STEM or more vocational programmes)
• Examination of the wider learning environment

How Can I Help? The 101 Guide to Being an LGBTQ+ Ally - Thursday 15th February, 2:30pm 
Dominic Arnall (Stonewall Head of Projects and Programmes) gives non-LGBTQ+ individuals the opportunity to explore what it means to be an ally.

This workshop will focus on how to be an effective ally, looking at our role within dismantling oppressions faced by others. The term "Ally" is used frequently nowadays and critics have sighted "allyship" as a form of slacktivism, allowing person a claim to "wokeness" without having to actually do anything.

This workshop aims to focus the term into a series of actions we can commit to as a group to ensure we are not bystanders to the oppression of others and instead increase our understanding of the oppressions faced by others
and contribute to the elimination of such discrimination, when it's comfortable, and when it isn't.

From Academia to Activism: Bringing Queer Theory into the Real World - Friday 23rd February, 1:30pm 
Nik Jovčić-Sas, an intersectional LGBTQ+ activist, invites you to learn about how you can incorporate campaigning and liberation into the world outside university. 

The university social and political bubble has become something many students and staff have become acutely aware of in the last few years. While Student Unions champion cutting-edge, progressive campaigns - the rest of society does not seem to be following suit.

LGBTQ+ activist and video blogger Nik Jovčić-Sas speaks about his work in the UK and Eastern Europe, and the importance of taking his student activist experiences outside of university, to make the world a more LGBTQ+ tolerant place.

Writers: If your Past isn't Queer the it is Not Realistic - Wednesday 28th February, 5:00pm
Cheryl Morgan, an award-winning literary critic and OutStories Bristol co-chair, explains why the past is much more interesting, and queer, than most people think. 

These days we regularly hear complaints that putting LGBT+ people (and people of colour, and women with agency) into historical narratives is "not realistic" and only done for "political correctness". Nothing could be further from the truth. The past is much more interesting, and queer, than most people think.
