LGBT+ History Month is a time to celebrate liberation and promote equality and diversity for all. This is done in a number of ways to raise awareness of matters affecting the LGBT+ community.
Brighton Students' Union are happy to support and promote LGBT+ History Month as we strongly believe in inclusivity and equality for all.
Our fantastic LGBT+ society have organised a range of brilliant events throughout the month for you to get involved with. If you want to get involved with the BSU LGBT+ society, join their Facebook group or sign up here. The University, UoB LGBT+ Staff Network and University of Brighton Alumni have also created events to celebrate the month, view all events below!
