LGBT History Month February

Throughout February, we celebrate LGBT History Month.

The University of Strathclyde aims to be an inclusive community which recognises the potential, talents and contribution of all people regardless of age, disability, gender reassignment, sex, race, religion or belief, sexual orientation, marriage and civil partnership and pregnancy and maternity (and paternity).

Learn more about some of our events, LGBT+ inclusive initiatives and support and relevant research on our LGBT History Month website
