LGBT+ History Month Profile: Storm

Throughout February, we celebrated LGBT+ History Month here at Queen Mary Students' Union and we sat down with various members of the LGBT+ community here, both on QM and Barts and The London campuses, to find out what the month means to them and why they think its so important that we continue to celebrate! 

Name and Year of Study?

Storm, 3rd Year



Why do you think LGBT+ History Month is so important?

LGBT+ History month is important as we get to take time to remember all those who have fought for equality and acceptance before us, while acknowledging that the fight for equality must continue. It is a time to celebrate our rich history but also celebrate ourselves now, individually and as a community.

What piece of culture do you think empowers you as an LGBT+ individual? (i.e. song, show, film, book, etc?)

Any song by Janelle Monae! They are a powerful black LGBT+ artist: they are proud to be black, proud to be LGBT+ and it’s a very wholesome feeling to see them killing the game !
