  4. 4. Language- Past & Present • Language often changes to reflect attitudes & values of the times we live in. • In the past the word bastard was used to describe a child whose parents were not married. Totally unacceptable these days!!
  5. 5. #OutofOrder Does it matter? My language, my business. Not so. You could be fined, fired or arrested for your use of language( verbal or online) if it is deemed racist or homophobic or offensive ( physical or mental disability). Can you think of any stories that have made the news?
  6. 6. No Bystanders; Stonewall
  7. 7. LGBT BASICS • LGBT people have existed throughout history, but because they often kept their sexuality secret, we might be unaware of the contribution that they have made to our society. • We want to celebrate the achievements of LGBT people with the aim of promoting equality and diversity for the benefit of everyone.
  8. 8. Love has no Labels
  9. 9. RV PLEDGE • We agree everyone has the right to feel safe. • We understand that all people, regardless of sexual orientation and gender identity, should be treated with dignity and respect. • We work on eliminating homophobia from our own words and actions • We do not tolerate anti-LGBT language and behaviour. • We support each other and know we can seek appropriate help throughout our school community.
