Ahead of the start of LGBT History Month, Forum+ have launched a fantastic calendar of events across February to celebrate our history as a community.
LGBT History Month is held in February each year and is a month-long celebration of lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans history, as well as a means of raising awareness for the issues faced by LGBT people. The celebrations take place during the month of February
The theme for LGBT History Month 2024, Medicine-UnderTheScope, celebrates LGBT+ peoples contribution to the field of medicine and healthcare both historically and today.
forum + is an independent charity working to promote equality for LGBT+ people in Camden and Islington, by hosting social groups and events which celebrate LGBT+ life in the boroughs and working to reduce social isolation and loneliness. They provide support services to victims of homophobic, biphobic and transphobic hate crime. All of their services are available to persons aged 18 or above.
forum + is very proud to present a fantastic programme of activities and events celebrating Camden & Islington LGBT History Month 2024. All the community is invited to join the festivities and explore LGBT history through art workshops, exhibitions, film screenings, guided walks, history talks, spoken word and more!

From Celebrating Derek Jarman to LGBT Histories Trail, from the Lesbian Discussion Group to the Loudest Whispers Exhibition, there is going to be so much to enjoy across Camden and Islington this February!
