LGBT History Month, a.k.a. Human History Month – Who cares about lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people and their lives and accomplishments? We all should, writes BJ Epstein for the Huffington Post. But why? February is LGBT History Month in the UK. The aim of LGBT History Month is to recognise and celebrate all the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people who have contributed to society and to history, and to highlight relevant and important events and issues. Just as with Black History Month (October in the UK, February elsewhere), Women’s History Month (March), or other such heritage months (such as Jewish American Month in May in the US), LGBT History Month seeks to call attention to an often overlooked group of people.
