About LGBT+ History Month
The overall aim of LGBT+ History month is to promote equality and diversity for the benefit of the public. This is done by:
- Increasing the visibility of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (“LGBT+”) people, their history, lives and their experiences in the curriculum and culture of educational and other institutions, and the wider community;
- Raising awareness and advancing education on matters affecting the LGBT+ community;
- Working to make educational and other institutions safe spaces for all LGBT+ communities; and
- Promoting the welfare of LGBT+ people, by ensuring that the education system recognises and enables LGBT+ people to achieve their full potential, so they contribute fully to society and lead fulfilled lives, thus benefiting society as a whole.

|Friday 11 February 11:00-12:00||Opening Doors, London – Story Telling Session|
Older LGBTQ+ people have often lead very different lives from their heterosexual and cisgender counterparts. By listening to their stories we can gain a better insight into the lives that they have lived, and build empathy for a generation of LGBTQ+ that lived through an exceptionally hostile environment. This story telling session will shed some light on the ways in which older LGBTQ+ people have engaged with health and social care services in both the past and present, and you will have the chance to hear their hopes for the future of LGBTQ+ affirmative healthcare.
