LGBTQ+ History Month is a great time to come together with the community and celebrate but also remember times gone by. It’s a time to look back on how far the fight for Equal Rights has come but also looking forward at how far we have yet to go.

As part of this campaign, we’re hosting a range of events including, two Lunchtime Drop-Ins for anyone who would like a chat, about anything! At a time where we can’t go to clubs, support groups, or physically meet our community, it’s so important to reach out if you need it.

You can join Kay on Facebook for #CookWithKay as they decorate rainbow cupcakes with flags belonging to the LGBTQ+ community and don't forget we're also running USWSU Book Club, Book Club Evening and Photography Competition all themed around LGBT+ History Month.

Don’t forget to check out the resources that we have on the USWSU Resource Hub, which gives you a gentle introduction to becoming an ally to LGBTQ+ people, as well as having resources for LGBTQ+ people. You can also get in touch with the USW LGBTQ+ Society on Facebook and @uswlgbtsoc on Instagram and Twitter!
