About

 

February 2021 is LGBT History Month, an annual month-long observance of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender history, and the history of the gay rights and related civil rights movements.

It was initiated in 1994 by Missouri (USA) high-school history teacher Rodney Wilson who came out to his class. After teaching about the Holocaust, Wilson shared that he could have been killed for being gay had he lived during that time.

Missouri is part of the USA “Bible Belt”, socially conservative evangelical Protestantism.

LGBT History Month provides role models, builds community, and represents a civil rights statement about the contributions of the LGBTQ+ community.

I aims to raise awareness of, and combat prejudice against, the LGBT+ community while celebrating its achievements and diversity and making it more visible.

Sue Sanders founded LGBT History Month 15 years ago to improve education and awareness of LGBT historical figures.

We need it because the ignorance is profound
