LGBT History Month

What is LGBT History Month?

February marks LGBT History Month, which celebrates and remembers lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender history. The aim of the month is to promote equality and diversity throughout the public. This year’s theme discusses religion, belief and philosophy.

LGBT History Month first originated within the US, but was initiated in the UK by Schools OUT and Sue Sanders. The first observance of this month took place in 2005. Sue Sanders is co-founder of Schools OUT, an organisation created to ensure ‘equality, safety and visibility in education for all lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans people since 1974’.

Speaking of this year’s LGBT History Month, David Cameron said, “I am pleased to support LGBT History month. I want the UK to be a place where you can go as far as your talents will take you. No one should be held back because of their race, gender, religion or sexuality.”

Events in support of LGBT History Month are happening throughout February up and down the UK. You can find out what’s happening through the LGBT History month calendar.
