LGBT History Month is finally here!
Every February in the UK we celebrate LGBT History Month, to celebrate the rich history of our community, to remember the events who lead us to where we are now and to honour the people who made it possible.
This year’s theme is “Poetry, Prose and Plays”. All throughout History, there have been countless poets, writers and playwrights who were LGBT, although it might not have been public knowledge at the time, and from very early on some of them wrote about their sexuality and gender, creating a path for future authors to express themselves and embrace their identities.
This is why this month we want to celebrate LGBT representation in literature, and the authors who embody the beautiful diversity that defines our community.
Each week we will publish a biography of one of these inspiring writers, so you can enjoy the beautiful words that made our history.
