WPSfG supporting LGBT+ History Month 2024

LGBT+ History Month

Claiming our past – Celebrating our present – Creating our future

LGBT+ History Month is for everyone; whether you work in education, a museum, a library or an art gallery, a business, a service, or are a member of a network/social group or an individual.

It is celebrated every February across the UK and was founded in 2004 by Schools OUT UK  co-chairs, Paul Patrick & Professor Emeritus Sue  Sanders. It was first celebrated in February 2005.

For so long LGBT+ people’s history was hidden, following the repeal of Section 28, UK LGBT+ History Month was created to:

  • claim our past
  • celebrate our present
  • create our future

We are delighted to announce that 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.

Ms Sewell, Ms Spencer (library) and Ms Donald are starting a Rainbow Club for our LGBTQ+ students. This will take place from 3pm every Thursday in the library. Students should register with their tutor before joining us. 

This is a space for students to meet, chat and enjoy time together where they can feel safe to be themselves and possibly discuss their experiences with likeminded folk. We foresee it being led by their needs and very relaxed.
