LGBTQ History Month

LGBTQ History Month is a celebration of the achievements and important moments of the LGBTQ community around the world throughout history. Depending on which country you live in, a different month is dedicated to honoring the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender communities.

The awareness month is observed in countries like Australia, Brazil, Canada, Greenland, Hungary, the United Kingdom, and the United States. No matter which country you find yourself in during that month, you'll find events that celebrate pride and people speaking up about why representation matters.


Show Your Pride with a Personalized Design

Spread awareness about LGBTQ History Month and the fight for equality with a personalized flyer or poster. Or create invitations to your Pride Party. However you choose to celebrate, create eye-catching visuals and increase understanding of queer history, gay rights, lesbian rights, and what's particularly important to you as a transgender person or a queer person.

Celebrate LGBTQ History Month

This month celebrates every milestone for equality and LBTQ+ rights. In the United States, it was created by Rodney Wilson, a history teacher at Missouri high school in 1994. The month of October was chosen because of National Coming Out Day on October 11 and the first march for gay rights in Washington on October 14 in 1979.

Included in the celebrations of every sexual orientation is Ally Week when students are asked to become allies of members of the LGBTQ+ community and stand up against bullying. If you haven't already done so, this month is the time to get informed. Find LGBTQ+ services near you and learn about representation and the history of the community.
