LGBT+ History Month

LGBT+ History Month at the University of Bradford

1 - 28 February 2022

Welcome to the LGBT+ History Month 2022 at the University of Bradford.

Here you'll find information on our series of speaker events taking place throughout the month, as well as resources about History Month and the LGBTQIA+ community.

LGBT+ History Month is an annual month-long observance of past struggles and achievements of LGBTQIA+ people and the history of the gay rights and related civil rights movements.

In the UK it takes place every February and was originally created by Schools Out UK. Its aim is to promote and advance equality, diversity and inclusion.

University of Bradford’s LGBT+ History Month is being brought to you by:

  • The LGBT+ Network
  • The Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) team
  • UBU (University of Bradford Union of Students)
