LGBT+ equals me – a skip, a hop and a jump

Beginning in 2019,  East Sussex young people took part in a project funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund supported by the council’s youth service looking into local LGBT history.

The project was called ‘LGBT+ equals me – a skip, a hop and a jump’. It aimed to highlight the little-known history of East Sussex’s LGBT communities. Young people could look at archives and visit cultural sites and museums, as well as record interviews with older member of the local LGBT community.

We have produced a Year 9 English scheme of work for East Sussex schools to tie in with the project, making links to the work of Charleston’s Bloomsbury set. These resources are intended for use in school and may not be accessible for online use:
