February is LGBT+ History Month where we celebrate the community and its heritage to advocate, support and help bring about awareness and change. The term was first coined in 1994 by High-school teacher Rodney Wilson, who became the founder of the first Gay history month celebration, not to be confused with Pride, which came as a result of the 1967 Stonewall riots. As well as celebrating, LGBT+ History month also emphasises education, as a study conducted by the charity Stonewall in 2017 explained that 2 in 5 LGBT+ students had never experienced any form of education that reflected them or the history behind the LGBT+ movement. Education is key to highlighting the lived experiences and important matters of all those in the community.
