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. This year our focus in Hidden Histories and Coded Lives. Our featured figures are: Anne Lister, who kept her sexual conquests in a coded diary; Kenneth Williams and Hugh Paddick, who exposed everyone to the secret gay men’s language of Polari; Frida Kahlo, whose pain from disability and bisexuality she expressed through her paintings; and Le Chevalier d’Eon Beaumont, who lived for 30 years as a woman after the French Revolution and who was nearly executed by the English!
