Events for LGBT History Month 2016

February is LGBT History Month, and we’re taking the opportunity to celebrate and explore LGBT culture with academic lectures, discussion, film screenings and more.

Almost all events are free, and most are open to the public as well as staff and students. Get these dates in your diary and come along to one (or all!) of them. We’re sure that there will be something for everyone, whatever their interests – but if you think there is anything missing or if there is something you would like to see next year, please contact the People and Culture Team.

We’ll be adding more events to this gallery and will update this blog regularly from 1 February with news, events and comment. Make sure you keep checking back. If you are interested in writing a blog post this month or next year, please get in touch.
