LGBT+ History Month

LGBT+ History Month is celebrated every February.

For a very long time LGBT+ people’s history has been hidden and the contributions LGBT + people and communities have made to UK society overlooked. LGBT+ History Month gives us another opportunity to put the record straight. It enables us to celebrate the achievements and contributions of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and non-binary (LGBT+) people and highlight the ongoing struggles and discrimination they face.

In the United Kingdom LGBT History month is celebrated in February.

Visit their website for free downloadable resources including social media banners for your Facebook or Twitter page and the Voices which you could display on your workplace noticeboard together with Usdaw’s poster.
