Celebrating LGBT History in Coventry & Warwickshire
Every year in February around the world Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender people celebrate LGBT History Month. This annual series of events provides an opportunity for people to look back over the history of humanity and acknowledge the existence and achievements of the LGBT community despite the attempts that have been made to oppress, obscure or even erase the LGBT element from our history books.
In Coventry it is an opportunity to acknowledge and celebrate the achievements of the LGBT community living and working within the City today, as well as raise awareness about their place in the history of the city, and of the world. This Year’s Theme is Maths, Science and Engineering celebrating the wide range of LGBT people involved in these key areas of work now and in the past.
