Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans History Month has been celebrated across the UK since February 2005.
Sexism and Homophobia combined mean that LGBT+ Women's achievements are regularly overlooked not recorded, honoured or recognised. It is vital that we celebrate the role these women played in history and making sure their stories aren’t left out of the history books.
The NUS LGBT+ campaign and the NUS Women's campaign believe that these exceptional LGBT+ Women should be celebrated as part of history month, and that's why we've produced this briefing.
This is a useful guide on being more inclusive of LGBT+ women in your LGBT history month activities, including a list of ten LGBT+ women of history - ranging from activists to actresses to boxers and singers. We've also included some top tips on how to use this information, as well as links to other organisations so you can find out more.
