Raising the Flag to LGBTQ+ History Month

LGBT+ history month happens every February. Its mission is to promote equality and diversity through improving the visibility of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender communities and stories, raising awareness of, and educating people about, relevant issues and making institutions safe spaces for all LGBTQ+ people. This year’s theme is ‘Body, Mind and Spirit’, and in recognition of the challenging times we are currently living through, we will be promoting mental health and wellbeing as part of our celebrations this year.
