Is celebrated each February. In Scotland the event is organised by LGBT Youth Scotland.
The LGBT History Month Scotland website sums up what the event is all about:
LGBT History Month takes place in February each year. At its heart, it’s an opportunity to celebrate LGBT life and culture and to recognise the achievements of LGBT people and communities.
LGBT History Month is for everyone: community groups, organisations, individuals, activists, service providers, LGBT and non-LGBT people alike. Importantly, LGBT History Month is a great opportunity for local authorities, businesses and third sector organisations to show their support for LGBT people.
Every year we work in partnership with groups and organisations all over Scotland to programme a range of arts, cultural and educational events. We’re here to help you get involved whether you want to run your own event, find out what’s on in your area, or just find out more about LGBT history and culture.
Events within the programme are delivered by a wide range of individuals, partners, community groups, schools, universities, colleges and local authorities. We would like to thank them for their commitment to LGBT History Month in Scotland.
