Celebrate LGBT+ History Month by sharing your sources of inspiration

LGBT+ History Month shines a light on those who have inspired, educated, and supported others in learning about LGBT+ culture, as well as those who have fostered allyship.

Occurring annually in February, LGBT+ History Month coincides with the momentous abolition of section 28 in 2003, a policy that unjustly restricted the “promotion” of homosexuality.

Since its inception in 2005, LGBT+ History Month has been instrumental in raising awareness of LGBT+ issues and acknowledging the often overlooked historic events and accomplishments of LGBT+ individuals.

As part of this month-long celebration, we invite you to share your favourite LGBT+ TV shows, films, characters, literature, artists, or personalities. While the national theme highlights contributions to the field of medicine and healthcare, we welcome any inspirations you may have. Kindly send your recommendations to [email protected].

Notable events taking place in Bury during this month include:

  • The Bury LGBTQI Forum is organizing an event at the Bury Art Museum and Library, featuring author Matt Cain who will be launching his latest book. The event will also include a Q&A session. Bury Libraries will proudly showcase their collection of LGBTQI literature for residents to borrow. Matt’s speech will take place on Friday 2 February from 6.30 to 9pm, and admission is free.
  • During their next monthly drop-in session, the forum will focus on 50 years of LGBTQI activism. The meeting will be held at the Big Fandango on Bolton Street on 13 February at 7pm, and everyone is welcome to attend.
