LGBTQ+ History Month

Back to Latest News

During the month of February, we are all called upon to reach out and understand one another, demanding equality and respect for everyone in our community. During this month it is a celebration of LGBTQ+ and how we can live and love in a society that respects, values and where there is equality for all.  Lambeth Council celebrates equality, diversity and inclusion with a month-long programme of LGBTQ+ History Month events.   

Councillor Sonia Winifred, Cabinet Member for Equalities and Culture said “I am delighted to invite you to this year’s LGBTQ+ history month. The theme for February 2021 is Body, Mind, Spirit.  Lambeth Libraries will host a series of events including Q&As with authors, history talks and reading sessions for all ages that explore the contribution LGBTQ+ people have made to all our lives.  They have co-ordinated this programme to give an insight into LGBTQ+ history, giving us all the opportunity to understand and challenge discrimination and promote equality, diversity and inclusion. The vibrancy of Lambeth is very well reflected in the diversity of our communities and our commitment to equality. I hope you will join us.”
