This morning we started our journey across the UK for LGBT History Month.

LGBT History Month aims to increase the visibility of LGBT people and experiences through the curriculum and other educational sectors, as well as in the wider community.

The month also aims to ensure schools and other institutions are safe spaces for LGBT people, who may feel isolated in the school community.

Thousands of institutions come together each year to explore and celebrate the LGBT experience, whether through a film screening, lecture or even museum exhibitions.

The Albert Kennedy Trust will be visiting schools and universities across the UK during LGBT History Month. We’re aiming to educate, inspire and inform high school, sixth form and university students about AKT’s services and LGBT history. We will also spread awareness of our new online service inter-AKT, an online support platform for young LGBT people who may be struggling with homelessness, bullying or coming out to their friends and family.
