LGBT+ History Month was first launched in the UK in 2005, and it has grown in popularity and recognition over the years. The event is celebrated in a range of different ways, including educational workshops, film screenings, exhibitions, and other cultural events. Schools, universities, businesses, and community groups all participate in the event in different ways.
Each year, LGBT+ History Month has a different theme that focuses on a particular aspect of LGBT+ history and culture. Previous themes have included “Catalyst: 30 years of change”, “Peace, Activism and Reconciliation”, and “Geography: Mapping the world”.
LGBT+ History Month in the UK is an important opportunity to acknowledge and celebrate the contributions of LGBT+ people to British society, as well as to reflect on the progress that has been made in terms of equality and human rights. It is also a reminder that there is still much work to be done to achieve full equality for LGBT+ people, both in the UK and around the world.
