The NUT is working to support and promote LGBT equality around the world. The Union has a longstanding commitment to oppose discrimination in all its forms, in all parts of the world.
We acknowledge the urgency of the violence and discrimination faced by LGBT teachers, pupils and other individuals around the world. We are working to progress LGBT rights through our international campaigning and solidarity work with trade union networks and NGOs. The NUT has worked with Education International (EI), The European Trade Union Committee for Education (ETUCE), the International Lesbian and Gay Association (ILGA) and other bodies that address homophobic and transphobic discrimination around the world. In addition, the NUT’s LGBT Advisory Committee focuses on the rights and welfare of LGBT sisters and brothers around the world as part of its broader work.
