Events for LGBT History Month 2017
February is LGBT History Month, and to celebrate we are exploring LGBT culture with academic lectures, discussion, film screenings and more.
All events are free, and are open to the public as well as staff and students. Read our introductory blog post from Dr Max Biddulph, Associate Professor in Education and Counselling and Chair of the University’s LGBT Staff Network, explaining why we are marking February with these events.
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. You can also get updates from @UoNPandC on Twitter.
