LGBT History Month is marked across the UK throughout February as an opportunity to connect and reflect on the past and present of the LGBT Community, celebrate LGBT culture and progress towards equality over time, and to explore what the lessons of history can teach us for the future.
The events which take place throughout the month are delivered by community groups, schools, volunteers, activists, and organisations from the private, public and third sectors. Anybody can take part, and everyone who decides to host an event, however big or small, whether online or in-person, helps to make LGBT History Month what it is.
In previous years LGBT Youth Scotland have provided a theme and coordinated the listings for these fabulous events all over Scotland. In 2023 LGBT History Month will be community-led, without this central directory of events. Events are happening all over Scotland from Shetland to Berwick, and Arran to Mull. We hope you will support events in your local area many of which will be advertised on social media.
Many thanks for supporting and celebrating LGBT History Month in Scotland.
