LGBTQUA+ History Month is celebrated annually in February
LGBTQUA+ History Month is observed throughout February, it is an annual celebration of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and trans history, and the history of the LGBTQUA+ rights and related civil rights movements.
The overall aim of LGBT History month is to promote equality and diversity for the benefit of the public. This is done by:
- Increasing the visibility of LGBTQUA+ people, their history, lives, and experiences in the curriculum and culture of educational and other institutions, and the wider community.
- Raising awareness and advancing education on matters affecting the LGBTQUA+ community.
- Working to make educational and other institutions safe spaces for all LGBTQUA+ communities.
- Promoting the welfare of LGBTQUA+ people, by ensuring that the education system recognises and enables LGBTQUA+ people to achieve their full potential, so they contribute fully to society and lead fulfilled lives, thus benefiting society as a whole.
