LGBTQIA+ History Month

LGBTQIA History Month

LGBTQIA+ History Month is celebrated with annual month-long observances of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender history, along with the history of the gay rights and related civil rights movements. National Coming Out Day (October 11th) and the March on Washington in 1979 are commemorated in the LGBTQIA+ community during LGBTQIA+ History Month.
