LGBT History Month

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 endorse LGBT+ History Month as we strongly believe in inclusivity and equality for all.

Our fantastic LGBTQ+ society have organised a range of brilliant events throughout the month for you to get involved with. Find out more about them below.
