LGBT HISTORY MONTH 2022 - Resources

LGBT History Month is an annual month-long observance of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender history.

To mark the occasion we have collated accounts from serving police officers and staff within the LGBT community and LGBT allies to highlight changes within society and the Police.

 

Thank you to those who have worked tirelessly to deliver all the content and events throughout the month.

For more info on the Scottish LGBTI Police Association or support regarding any issues raised in these account please email info@lgbtipolice.scot
