This LGBTQ+ History Month...

This LGBTQ+ History Month we want to make it possible for everyone to take part, so we've put together a list of activities that we hope everyone will be able to find something of interest in!

  • Something to read: The LGBTQ+ History Book, part of the DK 'Big Ideas Simply Explained' series, offers an accessible introduction to LGBTQ+ history. Contributors include two of our postgraduate students, Hannah Ayres and Nick Cherryman, and Warwick alumnus Melissa Martin.
  • Something to watch: The local Earlsdon Film Club are screening Pride (2014), a film about U.K. LGBT+ activists' work in solidarity with the miners during their lengthy strike of the National Union of Mineworkers in the summer of 1984.
  • Something to attend: On Friday, Queering University staff lead, Sam Parr, will be delivering a talk on the question 'Is Transphobia a Protected Belief?', exploring several recent employment tribunal rulings of interest.
  • Something to volunteer for: As we start preparations for Warwick's second annual Pride festival, we're looking for volunteers to assist with planning and/or to support activities on the day. Please email your interest to us at
  • Something to listen to: History is Gay is a podcast that examines the underappreciated and overlooked queer ladies, gents, and gentle-enbies that have always been there in the unexplored corners of history. Because history has never been as straight as you think.
  • Something to sign and share: Our Pronouns Pledge makes it simple to engage with inclusive best practice on pronouns, and to build a movement of people taking these steps together. Don't forget to pick up your free pronoun badge too!
  • Something to learn and apply: This LGBTQ+ inclusive teaching & learning resource applies the work of Dr Nicola Gale and Dr Nicki Ward at the University of Birmingham, who created the Ward-Gale model of LGBTQ-inclusivity in Higher Education.
  • Something to respond to: Support trans young people in education by responding to the Government's consultation on draft guidance for schools and colleges. Stonewall and Mermaids both offer support and guidance on responding to the consultation.

For more ideas, connect with the Queering University programme and get involved.
