Celebrating LGBTQ+ History Month Through Books.

Every February, people all around the world come together to celebrate LGBTQ+ History Month. This is a time for us to reflect on our past and honour the generations of brave individuals who came before us, from activists to allies, who have made it possible for us to live openly and authentically today. Reading can be an important part of this engagement, allowing us to further understand our history and what it means for our present.

Why Read During LGBTQ+ History Month?

Reading is one of the best ways we can learn more about our history as a community. It allows us to engage with stories that may not have been told before and gives us insight into how we got here today. Reading offers an opportunity to learn more about key figures and events in the development of LGBTQ+ rights in the UK and around the globe. We are able to dive into topics such as political activism, medical advancements, social movements, and cultural changes over time. By reading, we can gain a better understanding of what it means to be a part of this community today.
