LGBT+ History Month is an annual celebration of lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans+ and queer culture taking place in February each year. It provides an opportunity to reflect on and remember the history of the LGBT+ rights and related civil rights movements. As Sue Sanders, founder of LGBT+ History Month also stated, it is an opportunity to "educate out prejudice".
The book display and 'Behind the Lens' display will be available from Tuesday 7th - Tuesday 28th February - Library A Floor.
The LGBT+ History Month 2023 #BehindTheLens celebrates LGBT+ peoples’ contribution to cinema and film from behind the lens.
Directors, cinematographers, screen writers, producers, animators, costume designers, special effects, make up artists, lighting directors, musicians, choreographers and beyond.
At a time when LGBT+ lives are in the media we also encourage you to look ‘Behind the Lens’ and listen to LGBT+ peoples’ lived experiences.
We aim to raise awareness and the profile of LGBTQIA+ issues and ensure that there are visible role models at different levels of the organisation.
Membership is open to all permanent and temporary staff or postgraduate students at Lancaster University who define themselves as LGBTQIA+, and any permanent and temporary staff or postgraduate students who consider themselves to be our allies. We are inclusive of people with multiple identities and particularly welcome members from marginalised and underrepresented groups.
