LGBT History Month!

As you know, the month of February is also when LGBT History Month takes place, and the theme of this year is Peace, Activism and Reconciliation!

Set up in the UK by the charity 'Schools Out UK'  after the abolition of section 28 in 2003, LGBT History Month continues to celebrate the progress of the LGBT community, as well as promoting equality and acceptance and providing resources for schools and other groups.

The BBC have also made a video for LGBT History Month that you can watch here, which talks about lesser known LGBT+ figureheads and role models who campaigned for LGBT+ rights including Sue Sanders, a lesbian activist who established LGBT History Month itself!
