LGBT History Month 2024 is almost upon us in the UK, but the annual celebration of queer history and individuals is observed at different times of the year in different countries. In the UK it’s celebrated in February each year, but in the US and Canada it takes place in October. The UK iteration was started in 2005 and founded by the LGBTQ+ education charity Schools OUT UK. The charity states that the month is about “claiming our past”, “celebrating our present”, and “creating our future”, and is often used to promote LGBTQ education in schools. As part of helping educate people about LGBTQ+ history, Schools OUT UK provides free resources to help people celebrate.
