LGBTQ+ History Month

Welcome to this year’s LGBTQ+ History Month campaign, coinciding with the UK’s national LGBT+ History Month, which has been part of the United Kingdom’s observance movements since 2005.

This year’s national campaign theme celebrates LGBTQ+ peoples’ contributions within healthcare and medicine while also acknowledging the healthcare inequalities many in our communities continue to face. Here at QMSU, we’re highlighting the medical gatekeeping in the National Health Service faced by trans people, as well as the activism enacted by lesbian couples who sought equal access to fertility treatments.

We’re also celebrating our spectacular LGBTQ+ student population across Queen Mary’s faculties and look forward to welcoming you to several exciting events directed by our student-led organising committee and LGBTQ+ societies. Attend a drag extravaganza across two nights in Laird Hall; discuss the intersectionality between neurodivergence, disability, learn about London’s queer history on a walking tour; and the LGBTQ+ community; or attend an LGBTQ+ lunch and learn about local volunteering opportunities, and more.

Also look out for web content across our platforms including student spotlights, LGBTQ+ historical alumni features; as well as exciting merch including pins, lanyards, among others!

Hope to see you there!
