  1. There are 9 listed characteristics which are: age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex, sexual orientation
  2. The percentage of Muslims in the UK is 6.5%.
  3. Last year, there were 100 female artists out of a total of 182 artists which equals 55%.
  4. The social model of disability states that people are disabled by barriers in society, not by their impairment or difference.
  5. Lully (17th century), Billy Strayhorn (20th century), Tchaikovsky (19th century), Saint Saens (19th century), Wendy Carlos (20th century), Little Richard (20th century), Handel (18th century), Sam Smith (21st century)
  6. The term used is Intersectionality.
  7. SK Shlomo.  In fact, many musicians – you only have to be married, have an age, and a sex.
  8. Ian Drury (polio), Rick Allen (one arm), Felix Kleissner (horn player with no arms), Ray Charles (blind), Dame Evelyn Glennie (deaf), Beethoven (blind), Oscar Peterson (stroke). Thinking about this from the social model- perhaps it would be better to say who is physically disabled and maybe think about barriers they face?

  10. Diwali, Ramadan, Eid, Yom Kippur, Christmas, Easter, Hanukkah, Lent, Holi. What others can you think of?
  11. Baaba Maal (Senegal), Fela Kuti (Nigeria), Youssun N’Dour (Senegal). Can you think of others?
