LGBT+ History Month

LGBT+ History Month is a celebration each February in the UK of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and non-binary history. This includes the history of LGBT+ rights and related civil rights movements.

LGBT+ History Month

It was started back in 2005 by School’s Out UK. The purpose of this month is to promote equality and diversity.

This is done by:

  • “Increasing the visibility of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT+) people, their history, lives and their experiences.
  • Raising awareness and advancing education on matters affecting the LGBT+ community;
  • Working to make educational spaces and other institutions safe spaces for LGBT+ communities;
  • Promoting the welfare of LGBT+ people to achieve their full potential, so they contribute fully to society and lead fulfilled lives, thus benefiting society as a whole”
