LGBT+ History Month

LGBT+ History Month is celebrated every February.

The theme for this year’s LGBT+ History Month 2022 is ‘Politics in Art’ and looks at how artists have used their talents for political means such as drawing attention to the AIDS crisis and tackling fascism.

The aims of LGBT+ History Month are to tackle prejudice and highlight the significant contribution individual LBGT+ activists, campaigning organisations, trade unions and communities have made to winning LGBT+ equality.

Visit their website for free downloadable resources including the hidden histories wall chart and the official 2022 LGBT+ History Month logo which you can display on your workplace noticeboard together with Usdaw’s poster.

LGBT+ people already face a wide range of inequalities throughout their lives. Therefore, it will come as no surprise that they are disproportionately affected by the crisis but the ways in which they have been disadvantaged has to a large extent remained hidden from public view. Find out more >>
