About LGBT History Month
LGBT History Month takes place in February every year and offers the chance to connect and to reflect on the past and present of the LGBT community.
It’s an opportunity to celebrate LGBT culture and progress towards equality over time, and to explore what the lessons of history can teach us for the future.
While LGBT Youth Scotland creates the annual theme and co-ordinates its website and event listings, LGBT History Month can only exist with your support.
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.
The theme is intended to inspire, engage and provoke conversation – what that looks like is entirely up to you.
