LGBT+ History Month is an annual celebration that provides education and insight into the issues that the LGBT+ community faces. The primary aim of LGBT+ History Month is to teach young people about the history of the gay rights movement and to promote an inclusive modern society.
LGBT+ History Month is marked every February by schools, colleges, and various organisations across the country, who seek to increase young people’s awareness of the LGBT+ community through education. The theme for LGBT+ History Month this year it is ‘Body, Mind, Spirit.’
Many organisations are holding virtual events to acknowledge the month and honour the history of the LGBT+ community, including educational talks, virtual art exhibitions, film screenings and readings.
