LGBT+ history month is about celebrating the history of LGBT+ people across the world.
It is a time to celebrate LGBT+ identities globally and the strides LGBT+ people have made in improving our lives, and the fight that continues against bigotry everywhere.
It is important to remember the history of those most overlooked in the LGBT+ community, that of communities of colour, colonised communities, trans people, particularly trans women and trans feminine people, and sex workers.
It is also important to celebrate the personal history of LGBT+ people. For LGBT+ people, your stories and lived experiences are a crucial part of LGBT+ history month.
This February LGBT+ Committee at the University of Sheffield invites you to share in your history during several events throughout the month.
