Promoting Pink Against Prejudice

Monday, November 18, 2013 - 15:45

The 18th November 2013 marks the 10th anniversary of the scrapping of Section 28 from the Statute books.

Section 28 was the law that banned the ‘promotion’ and ‘publication’ of anything that supported a LGBT ‘pretend lifestyle’ in UK schools. The impact of such a law was to strictly limit discussion about different types of family units, gender and sexual orientation that exists and therefore maintains barriers to the acknowledgement and acceptance of those differences.

Schools Out, one of Consortium's Members, has chosen the colour pink for the 10 year anniversary as pink is associated with diversity and the LGBT community since it was reclaimed from its use to identify homosexual men under Nazi Germany. Pink therefore also embodies opposition to Section 28, namely:

Pink is to promote!
Pink is to publish!
Pink is to be positively proud of who you are!
