LGBT+ History Month

This LGBT+ History Month, help us to celebrate our diverse Herts community.

LGBT+ History Month is celebrated every year in February. This is a chance for us to look at the past, present, and future issues impacting the LGBT+ community. Through raising awareness and educating ourselves, we can challenge prejudice and bias to drive positive change and inclusion.

For 2023, we will be running a full events programme including workshops, resources and activities that are thought provoking, empowering and celebratory. All students and staff are encouraged to attend the LGBT+ History Month activities.
