LGBT+ History Month

Every February we celebrate LGBT+ History Month across the University and the UK. The month 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, the law that banned 'promotion of homosexuality' in the UK. This year marks 20 years since Section 28 was repealed. The LGBT+ History Month 2023 theme is 'Behind the Lens' (#BehindTheLens)
