LGBTQ+ History Month

LGBTQ+ History Month 2023 banner

LGBTQ+ History Month takes place across the UK every February. The University of Birmingham offers an exciting and diverse programme of events with all students, staff and the wider community warmly invited to join us in celebrating and commemorating LGBTQ+ history.

At Birmingham we celebrate our diversity and are committed to creating an inclusive environment in which all members of the University can flourish. We are delighted to support LGBTQ+ History Month, which is an important component of our Equality Programme. We will continue to raise awareness of issues facing LGBTQ+ members of our community, as well as celebrating their significant contributions and achievements.

How can I get involved?

There are lots of ways to support LGBTQ+ History Month events at Birmingham. Please attend as many as you can and encourage others to do the same. If you are a member of the Rainbow Network or the Allies scheme, please wear your Network or Scheme lanyard during February. If you are not a member, consider joining the Rainbow Network or joining the LGBTQ+ Allies Scheme.   

Finally this is a great time to get inspired and think about putting on your own event as part of the programme for next year.  Please share details of your event via the event submission form.
