LGBT history month

Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Trans (LGBT) History Month

1st to 28th February 2019

LGBT History Month is a month-long annual observance of lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans history, and the history of gay rights and related civil rights movements. It is observed during February. This year’s theme is Peace, Activism and Reconciliation. The theme has such great importance this year as it marks the 50th year since the Stonewall riots and World Pride and the end of World War 1.
During LGBT History Month, we remember and celebrate the important people from the past and also who contribute to and help our society today.
In Nottingham, LGBT History holds a strong position in our local and national culture.

 LGBT History Month provides an opportunity to both celebrate and commemorate achievements and events that have shaped the history of people both locally, nationally and worldwide. LGBT History Month is not just about remembering the horrors and impacts of homophobia, transphobia and biphobia but also about celebrating and recognising the enormous cultural, intellectual, sporting, creative, political and social impacts on the world.

 Events and activities will take place at various venues across Nottingham and Nottinghamshire throughout February. For more information, contact: Rosey Donovan: rosey.donovan@nottinghamcity.gov.uk or by telephone 0115 876 2553
