About LGBT History Month

LGBT HM is celebrated in February in the UK but our work to challenge homophobia, biphobia and transphobia continues throughout the year. Our interactive calendar is also all-year-round so check it out or add an LGBT related event of your own.

This year our theme was Hidden Histories and Coded Lives. In 2016 our theme will be Religion, Belief and Philosophy. In 2017 we will look at Citizenship, PSHE and Law as we mark the 50th anniversary of the partial decriminalisation of male homosexuality in England and Wales.

We celebrated Valentine’s weekend in February by hosting the first ever UK LGBT History Festival in 3 locations in Manchester: The Central Library, The People’s Museum and the LGF Centre. To visit the site go here. To see broadcasts of the event from LGBTV go here
