Next year Scotland will become the first nation IN THE WORLD to teach LGBTQ history in schools. In November 2018, Scottish Ministers accepted in full the recommendations to deliver LGBT inclusive education across the curriculum to improve the learning environments of all children and young people. This means all public school pupils will receive lessons in the equality and identity issues faced by the LGBT community. Deputy First Minister and Education Secretary John Swinney said “Scotland is already considered one of the most progressive countries in Europe for LGBTI [lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex] equality. “I am delighted to announce we will be the first country in the world to have LGBTI inclusive education embedded within the curriculum.”
