Training Resources

We have a number of DVD resources which can be loaned from the unit.  DVD resources are a way of raising awareness of a particular area and can be shown to a group all at once.  Each DVD come with a resource pack so that additional training can be offered.  Currently we have 3 titles available:

  • Visibility Matters - 'Jan's Coming Out' - looking at Lesbian 'coming out'
  • Visibility Matters - 'Talking Transgender'
  • Age Concern - 'Gateway to Heaven' - looking at LGBT and age

If you wish to loan any of these, please contact equalityanddiversity@manchester.ac.uk

Additionally, we can access a wide range of LGBT films and documentaries via Kanopy streaming.  It is a University wide resourve and has hundres of LGBT related titles.
