Throughout February, we celebrate LGBT+ History Month.

LGBT+ History Month is an opportunity for learning and celebration of the past, present and futures of lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, non-binary, queer and intersex people and communities.

As a socially progressive and people-oriented organisation, the University of Strathclyde strives to be an inclusive community which recognises the potential, talents and contribution of all people. We value the diversity of our student and staff populations, and are committed to creating a culture and environment where everyone is welcome and thrives in their work and study.

There are lots of ways to get involved this LGBT+ History Month, see more details on our website LGBT History Month | University of Strathclyde
