LGBT+ History Month, celebrated throughout February, is a time to recognize and honour the contributions and struggles of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender individuals.

The 2024 Schools Out theme of LGBT+ History Month is Medicine #UnderTheScope

This year we are joining the celebration of LGBT+ peoples’ contribution to the field of Medicine and Healthcare both historically and today.

This showcases the amazing work of LGBT+ staff across the NHS and in other healthcare settings, in providing healthcare, especially during the pandemic. Whilst still shining a light on the history of the LGBT+ community’s experience of receiving healthcare which has been extremely complicated leaving LGBT+ people still facing health inequalities even today.

At a time when the LGBT+ community is experiencing a rise in hate crime and hate instances we also encourage you to look ‘Under the Scope’ and listen to LGBT+ peoples’ lived experiences from LGBT+ people. Discover more here:
