LGBT+ History Month 2022

To mark LGBT+ History Month this February and the 50th anniversary of the first UK Pride March in 1972 we have gathered together a selection of recently published, exceptional books which inspire and celebrate the LGBTQI community, raise awareness and educate society. And we pick a couple of old favourites that you may have missed and we think deserve a shout out!

LGBT+ History Month is an opportunity to consider the history of gay rights within the civil rights movement, highlight the freedoms that have been won and to promote equality and diversity within our community.

Having begun in the US in 1994 the movement has since spread around the globe. In the UK LGBT History Month is celebrated throughout February to coincide with the 2003 abolition of Section 28 (which prevented Local Authorities teaching the acceptance of homosexual relationships and homosexuality within a school setting).

This year the theme is Politics In Art: ‘The Arc Is Long’ and supports the National PHSE Curriculum. You can find plenty of resources at lgbtplushistorymonth.org.uk including ideas for youth groups, lesson plans, wall charts and loads of online talks and events. 

And you can find plenty of school focused resources here:
