LGBTQ+ History Month is an annual month-long observance of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender history, and the history of the gay rights. It's about reflection of the past, a look to the future and a celebration of pride.
In the UK History Month is celebrated in February each year, to coincide with the 2003 abolition of Section 28. Here at the University of Bedfordshire we have created this website to help grow knowledge, share experiences and deliver events on LGBTQ History Month.
Listen back to content from our monthly Queer Hour with music, chat and debate.
