February is LGBT+ History Month in the UK. In 2024 the theme is Medicine: #UnderTheScope with a focus on LGBT+ staff across the NHS and in other healthcare settings and the challenges faced by the LGBTQIA+ community in accessing healthcare.
LGBT+ History Month takes place every February across the UK, celebrating all LGBTQIA+ individuals and communities, and taking time to reflect on the struggles of the past, and what still needs to change.
Help us celebrate where we are, and be part of the change towards a truly inclusive community.
