LGBT+ History Month

Throughout February we celebrate the history of LGBT+ activism and the often hidden or under discussed contributions made by members of the LGBT+ community. Any community’s history does not simply live in a month, but such observances give us an opportunity of sharing its significance and importance. It is important for us all to be mindful of the contribution made by our wonderfully diverse family.

LGBT+ History Month

Body. Mind. Spirit.

Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) are key to our culture of care and at the core of how we work with all members of our community. We seek to develop further as a learning organisation and as the best possible place to work and study, to be a ‘community of great people’ and to ‘provide an excellent education and experience’ for all our colleagues and students.
