LGBT History Month shines a spotlight on LGBT history and culture. It's a celebration and an opportunity to reflect on progress made and challenges yet to overcome. We're thrilled to now unveil the theme for February 2021: Unsung.

Selective documenting of history and culture has been a pervasive issue for centuries, and the stories of LGBTQ+ people of colour are notably underrepresented; not least within the LGBTQ+ community itself. This marginalisation is not limited to race, as we have seen similar side-lining of disabled LGBTQ+ people, transgender people and women. To tell the story of LGBTQ+ activism, our triumphs and our tragedies, we should seek out and share these stories, as there is empowerment in representation.
