Description

LGBT Assembly script, whilst giving two specific examples of discrimination – Alan Turing and Harvey Milk – is a general celebration of diversity, stressing the importance of education in the fight against prejudice. It is suitable for primary school children and, as an ‘add-on’ gives a suggested list of discussion points to be gone through in preparation for this assembly.

I fear I may have erred on the side of caution in writing this script – I have not given any ‘definitions of LGBT terms’ though I am happy to provide these as a supplement if requested. But I hope I have delivered on the message that we should all work towards a ‘live and let live’ society – as prejudice and fear-free as possible.

Cast of 30 – Easily adapted to smaller or larger class size.

Duration: Around 10 – 15 minutes.

Sample Text:

Child 13:              Why cannot people be free to be who they are?

Child 14:              Why cannot people be free to express themselves as they are?

Child 15:              Fortunately, we live in increasingly enlightened times

Child 16:              So that people need not be afraid of the kind of discrimination that leads to the loss of freedom and the loss of life.

Child 17:              To live in fear is a terrible thing.

Child 18:              We often hear of bullying. This can happen to adults just as much as to children.

Child 19:              And the bullies are often the ones who are most frightened.

Narrator:             How does that work?

Child 20:              Prejudice is largely borne of ignorance. People feel threatened by things they don’t understand. They are afraid and lash out at whatever is beyond their comprehension.

Child 21:              Nobody likes being taken out of their particular comfort zone. And that comfort zone is often based on familiarity. Understanding what is going on.

Narrator:             So how do you think we should best tackle this problem?

Child 22:              Through education. Through making differences acceptable and non-threatening.

Child 23:              If we all accept it’s OK to be different then that’s half the battle.
