Sexual orientation and gender identity

3.2 The missing event

Producing a timeline about trans people and trans people’s rights involves decisions about what to include and what to exclude. As you worked your way through the timeline there may have been events which you expected to see included, but which were ignored.

Activity 9: The missing event 2

You should allow yourself 45 minutes to complete this activity.

For Activity 7 you were asked to choose one date/event which you think should have been included in the timeline that looked at important legal, social and cultural events linked to gays and lesbians.

As you worked your way through the timeline on events linked to trans people, you may have thought of events which should have been included in this timeline. The event could be a legal event or a social/cultural event. If you can identify an event that you think should have been included relating to this timeline, think about how you would explain it to others who may not be familiar with it, and why you think it is significant.
