Sue Sanders speaking at the Pre-launch of LGBT History Month 2008 at the Royal Courts of Justice - 26 November 2007
In the 1970’s school teachers could be dismissed if it became known that they were Gay or Lesbian. As a young lesbian teacher in those days Sue Sanders recalls that women were not even allowed to wear trousers. This was the environment in which the organisation “School’s Out” was founded in 1974.
In this in-depth Podcast interview Sue speaks at length about the organisation she has worked for during the majority of her adult life, the way things have changed in that time and the problem for the next generation of society when today’s teachers are not equipped to teach about diversity. She also talks about LGBT History Month, which she helped to found in 2004.
Part of a series of in-depth interviews with LGBT and other diverse personalities that make up the Podcast channel “Just Plain Sense” by Christine Burns. you can listen to the interview here.
