LGBTQIA+ History Month
to 28 Feb
Every February we celebrate LGBTQIA+ History Month across the university and the UK. This was first celebrated in the UK in February 2005 as a campaign launched by Schools OUT UK – the LGBT+ Education charity which was founded in 2004 in the wake of the abolition of Section 28. This month is about raising awareness and combating prejudice against the LGBTQIA+ community but also to celebrate and acknowledge the achievements of the giants within this community. Throughout this month all staff and students are welcome to engage and participate in our LGBTQIA+ events and recognise and acknowledge the history of this community. For this month and thereafter it is important that we follow Schools Out UK’s three taglines: 'Claiming our past. Celebrating our present. Creating our future.'
Memorising the LGBTQ+ Giants: How They Have Inspired Us
Dr Baris Cayli Messina has organised an exhibition of posters - ‘Memorising the LGBTQ+ Giants: How They Have Inspired Us’, to be displayed on campus during LGBTQIA+ History Month. The selection is based on images of LGBTQ+ individuals, and an account of how these individuals reflect the diversity of the LGBTQ+ community. The exhibition will reflect the One Community principles of the University of Lincoln.
Local LGBTQIA+ Hidden Histories – Victoria Araj (she/her)
Friday, 17th February 6pm
This presentation will explore the Lincolnshire-related sources and references that Reimagining Lincolnshire researchers have discovered so far about local LGBTQIA+ history. As a public history project, our main focus is to uncover neglected narratives from the past in order to support a (far) more tolerant future. We realise there is a lot more to do; also that there are well-known challenges regarding research of this nature, such as criminalisation and resulting secrecy. Come along and discuss how despite these obstacles we can proudly put local LGBTQIA+ history front and centre.

Many people want to be allies to the LGBTQIA+ community, but what does that mean in action? This Be Inspired panel will gather allies both within and outside of the community to discuss what being an ally means to them. This discussion will be followed by a drink’s reception in the Pier Cafe.
Pride Month Planning
Wednesday 22nd February
MB3202 1.30 - 2.30
Lincoln Pride has been providing a fun and safe space in Lincoln for LGBTQIA+ people and their allies, since 2012. Incorporating local charities and organisations with the common goal of promoting equality and diversity is integral to making Lincoln Pride a success.
The University of Lincoln invites you to an informal ideas session about how we can support and engage with Lincoln Pride.
A representative from the Lincoln Pride Committee will be opening the ideas session with a presentation about Lincoln Pride, its goals and its impact on the region. A facilitated session will then take place to encourage participants to think about different fun and creative ways to get involved in Lincoln Pride and how we can showcase the University as inclusive. You don’t need to be an expert, just passionate about LGBTQIA+ inclusion!
