Tony Fenwick, CEO of Schools OUT UK, the founders of LGBT History Month, has been awarded an MBE at the request of the DfE for services to equality in education.

Tony said: “I am delighted and honoured to receive an MBE but I regard it as an award for all of us at Schools OUT UK who work as volunteers and give up our valuable time to make things happen.

“I have accepted the MBE as an acknowledgement that our work in education is being valued and that our work for schools is making an impact. But I also hope to use the gong to lobby parliament to encourage the nations of the Commonwealth to get rid of the Empire’s outdated legislation and legalise same sex relations throughout their lands.”
