Hosting an event

We’re here to help you get the most out of LGBT History Month. We can help you develop your ideas, find a venue, advertise your event, gather feedback afterwards, and much more. How do you want to celebrate LGBT History Month? Get in touch and we can get the ball rolling, email michael.richardson@lgbtyouth.org.uk. We've also created an LGBT History Month Toolkit to help groups and organisations plan their own History Month events.

You can download the toolkit, and some accompanying posters, here.

Core Values

LGBT History Month takes place in February each year. At its heart, it is an opportunity to celebrate LGBT life and culture and to recognise the achievements of LGBT people and communities. The ethos of LGBT History Month is one of inclusion.

Planning is essential to developing a successful LGBT History Month programme. Start planning as early as possible, as projects take time to get off the ground, especially if you wish to secure the support of other partners or seek funding from other sources. The sooner you start the better!

Promotion

Promotion is key to raising awareness of LGBT History Month and to the success of individual events. Planning your promotion carefully is as important as planning your event. It means that you need to think through the best means of promoting your event, based on your target audience. It also requires some preparation to ensure that promotion takes place at the appropriate times.

Evaluation

By undertaking a thorough evaluation of your event, you will be able to measure its impact and identify areas for improvement in future years. Sharing evaluation data will also allow you and others to learn from your combined experiences and ensure that EU Member states continue to celebrate LGBT History Month for many years to come.
