What is LGBT History Month?
February marks LGBT History Month, first started in 2005. At SUBU we mark the month with a collection of activities to explore the history of the LGBT community and provide space for LGBT students to celebrate their "being", both historical and present.
LGBT History Month celebrates the lives and achievements of LGBT people who's lives have often been hidden, it has been easy for others to stereotype and distort the reality of their lives. From this ignorance comes the prejudice that shows itself in LGBT phobic bullying and negative discrimination. By presenting an honest appraisal of LGBT lives LGBT History Month seeks to replace ignorance with knowledge and understanding.
Take a look at what we have done in the past at SUBU for LGBT History Month!
