LGBTQ+ History Month

LGBTQ+ History Month is an annual event held across the UK every February. The event was first celebrated in 2005, after the abolition of Section 28 in 2003, the Employment Equality Regulations 2003, as well as Government proposals to bring in a Single Equality Act. This month’s aims to raise awareness of, and combat prejudice against the LGBTQ+ community, as well as celebrating its achievements and diversity.

LGBTQ+ History Month has three main taglines: “Claiming our past. Celebrating our present. Creating our future”.

Here at Aspire, we not only ensure that we are educating our learners about the LGBTQ+ community, but also our colleagues. We have set up a LQBTQ+ Group to provide an opportunity to express anything related to being LGBTQ+ at Aspire Training Team and to set up an action plan, fully supported by the Directors, in order to ensure that our LGBTQ+ colleagues are fully welcomed into our family, and that any blocks or concerns can be raised and addressed. Find out more about this group here.
