February is the annual month-long celebration of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender history. This year’s theme is ‘Past, Present and Future’. It is a dedicated time to acknowledge, celebrate and share the impact of LGBTQ+ culture.
Looking at the past, 2023 marks 20 years since the abolishment of section 28 (a law that prohibited the “promotion of homosexuality” by local authorities.)
Following many years of resistance against homophobia, the present-day is a truly historic moment for our communities - after years of invisibility, the queer community are starting to be seen as we have been officially counted as part of the census.
Looking to the future, we must continue to stand in solidarity with our LGBTQ+ communities.
Throughout this month, we are hosting a range of activities - there’s something for everyone to get involved with so come join!
