This learning resource is designed to facilitate an exploration of LGBT lives and an engagement with issues of sexual and gender diversity in the adult ESOL classroom. The training and activities pack was developed through ongoing and sustained engagement with ESOL practitioners and other stakeholders and reflect needs and areas for further work identified by them, including the need for more training material on issues of equality and diversity and of LGBTI issues in particular. The resource draws on interview material collected for a project on LGBT migrants in Scotland (www.intimatemigrations.net) ; it includes a few real-life stories from LGBT migrants that touch upon themes such as families and relationships, gender identities, and homophobic, transphobi and racial prejudice and discrimination. The resource explores real LGBT lives and issues from a migrant perspective, and also addresses issues of migrant equality and belonging. This is something that ESOL learners, many of whom are migrants, asylum seekers and refugees settling in the UK, are likely to relate to.
