Being out at school (as teacher) - late '80s


Changing schools (Late 80s)

“By then I was teaching in Birmingham and I wasn’t happy. I’d left a very happy school and was in a school that I didn’t like at all much really so I gave that up and me and my partner went travelling for seven months. When I came back I got a new job and there was another gay woman on the staff which was good. We came out to one another but you didn’t dwell on it. She would come in and I’d be sitting there and she’d say, ‘Morning, how’s Jean?’, my partner, that sort of thing which felt comfortable and was OK, something acknowledged, that you’d got a life".
