Lib Dems welcome LGBT History Month

February 1, 2008 1:37 PM

The fourth Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender History Month kicks off today. DELGA Chair Jen Yockney said, "It looks like an even bigger and more varied season than before with events all over the country. History Month is great for reminding us all how far we have come in the last few decades, and also thought provoking as you go back further and have to face the question 'what counts?' In the centuries before the invention of words like homosexuality, heterosexuality and bisexuality, there are many figures we can pick out as queer in our modern view - but quite how they would have seen themselves if they lived today is open to some debate."

"At the same time it serves a great educative purpose in showing how rich and diverse life has always been and reminding us of the struggles for the freedoms we have now. Our warm wishes to all those volunteers putting on History Month events in the next four weeks."
