About LGBT History Month
February is LGBT History Month, an annual event which recognises the history of gay rights and related civil rights movements. The theme this year is ‘Body, Mind, Spirit’.
While the event originated in the US in 1994, it began in the UK 11 years later following on from an initiative created by teachers.
In 2005, educators and activists Sue Sanders and Paul Patrick organised LGBT History Month as part of a School’s Out project, a programme which aims to educate young people about the issues that members of the LGBT community face and make schools feel inclusive for everyone, regardless of their gender identity or sexual orientation.
LBGT History Month was held in February to coincide with the 2003 abolition of Section 28 of the 1988 Local Government Act.

Meet other LGBTQ+ people from all over the UK, come together, network, and discuss ideas for an ongoing forum.
2020 was a challenge for many of us as we face a new world coming out of lockdown, and many of us are thinking seriously about whether we want to return to the status quo. So whether you’re an established business leader or an aspiring freelancer – bring your enthusiasm, knowledge, and lunch along and meet some new people.
