Paul Patrick Dies

Paul Patrick

Paul Patrick
1950 - 2008

We are very sad to announce the tragic death of Paul Patrick, co-founder of what is now Schools OUT and of LGBT History Month. Paul died on Thursday morning after a long battle with a chronic lung condition. A full obituary with details of his unique life and outstanding achievements for the LGBT community can be found here.

For now, here is an opportunity to listen again to his wonderful interview with John McNaughtie on the Today programme in 2005, where he justified the verb ‘Invisibilised’ (requires Real Player).

Please click here to leave your thoughts and condolencies on Paul's memorial page. Thank you.

What a lovely lovely man, Paul we are going to miss your wicked sense of humour and your example of sheer hard work, an inspiration to many of us.
