What is LGBT History Month?
LGBT History Month is a month-long annual observance of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender history, and the history of the gay rights and related civil rights movements. LGBT History Month provides role models, builds community, and makes the civil rights statement about our extraordinary national and international contributions. Currently, LGBT History Month is a month-long celebration that is specific to the United States and the United Kingdom. In the United States, it is celebrated in October to coincide with National Coming Out Day on October 11. In the United Kingdom, it is observed during February, to coincide with a major celebration of the 2003 abolition of Section 28.

About the B Right On Festival
The overall aim of this three week project is to promote unity, equality and diversity for the benefit of the city.
This is done by:
Increasing the visibility of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (“LGBT”) people, their history, lives and their experiences in the curriculum and culture of educational and other institutions, and the wider community in a safe environment.
Raising awareness and advancing education on matters affecting the LGBT community and its allies.
Working to make educational, lawful and other institutions safe spaces for all LGBT communities.
Promoting the welfare of LGBT people, by ensuring that the statutory authorities recognise and enable LGBT people to achieve their full potential, so they contribute fully to society and lead fulfilled lives, thus benefiting society as a whole.
