LGBT History Month Speakers
LGBT History Month is an annual celebration, taking place from the 1st of February to the 28th of February 2023. Commemorating the achievements of LGBT+ people throughout history, the month is also a way of raising awareness of the discrimination they have faced in years gone by, and the prejudice they continue to face today.

LGBT History Month was created back in 1994, by high school teacher Rodney Wilson. Now celebrated worldwide, LGBT History Month creates role models and represents the contributions of LGBT+ people to society. A key date in the diversity and inclusion calendar, make sure you are celebrating throughout February!
The theme of LGBT History Month 2023 is ‘Behind the Lens‘. This theme will celebrate LGBT+ people’s contribution to cinema and film, recognising the work behind the lens of everyone from directors and producers to costume designers and make-up artists.
In a world where almost 50% of all LGBT pupils have faced bullying at school for being LGBT, it is more important than ever that we commemorate the rights fought for and challenges overcome by the LGBT community, ensuring that future generations grow up in a world without discrimination.
