LGBTUA+ History Month

LGBTUA+ History Month is observed throughout February, it is an annual celebration of lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans history, and the history of the LGBTUA+ rights and related civil rights movements.

The theme for 2019 is Peace, Activism and Reconciliation.

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 LGBTUA+ 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 LGBTUA+ community;
  • Working to make educational and other institutions safe spaces for all LGBTUA+ communities; and
  • Promoting the welfare of LGBTUA+ people, by ensuring that the education system recognises and enables LGBTUA+ people to achieve their full potential, so they contribute fully to society and lead fulfilled lives, thus benefiting society as a whole.
