Are You Proud? KS3 History, Politics, PHSE (SOW)


  • We partnered with Director Ashley Joiner and Producer Dan Cleland to bring you a series of lesson plans for KS3, 4 and 5 plus an assembly.
  • This resource is a Scheme of Work which can be used over 3-6 weeks, utilising the powerful film Are You Proud? as a backdrop to helping young people understand the struggle for liberation.
  • Background: The LGBTQ+ movement in the UK has fought bruising battles for equality. Directed by Ashley Joiner and Produced by Dan Cleland, Are You Proud? brings together rare archive footage and interviews from across a spectrum of historical campaigns to celebrate the movement’s landmark achievements. Pride, the Gay Liberation Front and the LGSM are among the organisations recognised in a film that doesn’t just look back but asks tough questions about the future. 50 years after the Stonewall riots in America, this is a timely moment to take stock and question how much attitudes have changed, and fundamental rights have been achieved.
