LGBT Youth Scotland primary assembly

This assembly introduces children to LGBT issues and the different ways we talk about LGBT people.

This assembly, from LGBT Youth Scotland, is designed to introduce children to LGBT issues in a simple, clear way.

The PowerPoint presentation has instructions on how to deliver the assembly in the notes. It includes a discussion on different labels we use for people, and a short story for teachers to read about a boy named Sam who experiences LGBT discrimination at school.

Once you have delivered this assembly, you can run the LGBT Youth Scotland role models activity in the classroom.
