Cumbria Pride are excited to announce the launch of our latest project, 'Create with Pride,' which is funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund. The project aims to educate secondary age children and young people about the history of the LGBT+ community and encourage them to share the information positively with their peers.
The project will be delivered through a series of workshops that will cover a range of topics related to LGBT+ history. Participants will learn about key events, figures, and milestones that have shaped the community, from the Stonewall Riots to the fight for marriage equality. They will also have the opportunity to explore the diverse experiences of LGBT+ people, including those from underrepresented groups such as people of colour, transgender individuals, and disabled people.
In addition to learning about history, participants will be encouraged to get creative and explore different ways of sharing the information with their peers. They will have the opportunity to work on a range of projects, from creating posters and displays to producing digital media.
We hope that this project will inspire young people to take an active interest in LGBT+ history and share their knowledge with their peers in a positive way. By raising awareness and promoting understanding, the project aims to create a more inclusive and accepting environment for everyone in the community.
