And… action! It’s LGBT+ History Month
In the UK, the first ever LGBT+ History Month began in February 2005 as a way to bring attention to LGBT people and their history, and has continued on since. The month-long celebration is full of different events, activities, and educational opportunities to help raise awareness about the civil rights of Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) people and to bring LGBT+ people together to greater expand the community. The LGBT+ History Month charity works hard to get this history into the educational system, and a dedicated month aids the campaign.
