Scotland has gone from criminalising LGBT people, to now recognised as among the best in the world for LGBT equality. This week marks the start of LGBT History Month. The annual celebration across Scotland recognises the contribution lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people have made to our society, and raises awareness of the history of the LGBT rights movement. We’ve come a long way in recent years. After decades of campaigning and hard-won progress, Scotland has gone from being a country that once criminalised LGBT people, to one that is now recognised as among the best in the world for LGBT equality.
