LGBT History Month 2019

LGBT History Month logo from

Today is the start of LGBT History Month.  This year, to mark the occasion, the School’s Equality & Diversity committee have put together a series of posters, each one dedicated to a particular historical figure or figures, event, or artefact that in some way is connected to LGBTQ+ histories and to histories – and historiographies – of sexuality. There are seven posters in total. These will be displayed in and around teaching rooms in both South Street and St Katherine’s Lodge from Monday for the rest of the month. See how many you can spot!

We hope that the posters will fire your interest to find out more about the fascinating people, moments and things they describe, so we’ll also release blog posts here over the course of the month which will set out some further reading related to each case. To wrap up the month, our School of History staff will share a reading list they have been putting together with a selection of related scholarship they have found especially important or interesting in their own sub-fields, periods and geographical areas.
