House of Lords approves LGBT-inclusive relationships and sex education

The House of Lords has given its backing to new mandatory LGBT-inclusive sex education in English schools. The regulation passed with overwhelming support on Wednesday (April 24th), which means the new regulation will come into effort from September 2020. A landslide vote indeed of 538 to 21!


Here at Swindon & Wiltshire Pride we are passionate about education, raising awareness and providing a Safe Space for LGBTQ+ individuals (see our previous post about our recent local college visits!)


The positive impact this will have on the LGBT+ young people in this country really can’t be underestimated. When you’re young and discovering who you are, the impact of bullying is devastating. Society needs to take steps to show the next generation that things are changing, and bringing in this regulation next year will make a big difference.
