LGBT+ History Month

February 1 - February 29

Today,1st February 2024, marks the start of  LGBT+ History Month and is celebrated across the UK.

The month observes lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender history and draws attention to LGBT+ figures and moments which may have been forgotten.

The UK 2024 LGBT+ History Month theme is:

Medicine – #UnderTheScope

The 2024 theme celebrates LGBT+ peoples’ contribution to the field of Medicine and Healthcare both historically and today.

We want to showcase the amazing work of LGBT+ staff across the NHS and in other healthcare settings, in providing healthcare, especially during the pandemic. Whilst still shining a light on the history of the LGBT+ community’s experience of receiving healthcare which has been extremely complicated leaving LGBT+ people still facing health inequalities even today.

At a time when the LGBT+ community is experiencing a rise in hate crime and hate instances we also encourage you to look ‘Under the Scope’ and listen to LGBT+ peoples’ lived experiences from LGBT+ people
