Design students help raise LGBT awareness

Creative learners in London aimed to turn heads, change minds and promote diversity for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) History Month.

BTec art and design, and graphic design students at the College of North West London were challenged by tutor Philip Crichton to create eye-catching posters to raise awareness of the event last month.

It celebrates the lives and achievements of members of the LGBT community, and the college marked the month as part of its regular work with LGBT rights charity Stonewall.

Chris Dye, Stonewall’s education officer, said: “It’s great to see students actively involved in the college’s work to tackle homophobia and celebrate difference. When the work is led by students themselves this has the most impact.”

The posters are displayed around the college’s two campuses in Wembley and Willesden.
