LGBTQA+ History Month is an annual celebration held during February in the UK, that highlights the contributions, success, and achievement of the LGBTQA+ community.
This year, we are proud to showcase our biggest and most collegiate LGBTQA+ History Month celebration to date- with a programme of events, activities, and resources that are open to our staff and students to mark this important month.
This year, the national theme is #BehindTheLens that celebrates LGBTQA+ peoples’ contribution to cinema and film from behind the lens. Directors, cinematographers, screen writers, producers, animators, costume designers, special effects, make up artists, lighting directors, musicians, choreographers and beyond. At a time when LGBTQA+ lives are often debated and sensationalised in the media we encourage you to look ‘Behind the Lens’ and listen to LGBTQA+ peoples’ lived experiences. Take a look at out Media Recommendations section for some inspiration!
Queen Mary University of London seeks to be the most inclusive university of its kind, anywhere, by 2030. We are proud to be a university that opens the doors of opportunity to anyone with the potential to succeed. Queen Mary's work to create an inclusive environment for our LGBTQA+ staff and students is underpinned in our People, Culture, and Inclusion Enabling Plan.
