Schools Out and LGBT History Month.
He was born in Bedlington.
He first got involved with LGBT History Month in 2004:
- "I was at the TUC LGBT conference, where Jacqui Smith, the Minister for Women and Equalities, talked to us about her role. Sue Sanders asked me to enquire whether it would be possible to have an LGBT history month and if the government would support it. Jacqui Smith said yes to both. That gave us the impetus to start."
Tony Fenwick and Sue Sanders were jointly ranked 55 in the Pink List 2012. The citation said:
- "As co-chairs of SchoolsOUT, Sanders and Fenwick aim to provide a support network for all people who want to raise the issue of homophobia, transphobia and heterosexism in education. They have also worked with LGBT History Month and the Classroom Project in the UK."
