We are delighted to announce that the UK 2024 #LGBTplusHM theme is:
Medicine – #UnderTheScope
The 2024 theme celebrates LGBT+ peoples’ contribution to the field of Medicine and Healthcare both historically and today. We want to showcase 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.
On 30th November please join us online at our theme launch.

What is UK LGBT+ History Month?
LGBT+ History Month is for everyone; whether you work in education, a museum, library or art gallery, a business, a service, are a member of a network/social group or an individual.
It is celebrated every February across the UK, and was founded in 2004 by Schools OUT UK co-chairs, Paul Patrick & Professor Emeritus Sue Sanders. It was first celebrated in February 2005.
For so long LGBT+ people’s history was hidden, following the repeal of Section 28 LGBT+ history month was created to:
– Claim our past
– Celebrate our present
– Create our future
Every year Schools OUT sets a different theme for LGBT+ History Month and provides free resources for education settings, businesses, services and organisations to help them celebrate and ‘Usualise’ LGBT+ lives in their full diversity.
If you would like to help support our work through partnerships or sponsorships please email email@example.com
We do hope you will join us to celebrate LGBT+ History Month 2024.
