‘From discussions on civil rights to queer crafts, the events taking place offer a unique opportunity to celebrate diversity...’
Professor Andrew Webber

Rainbow flags will fly - and be projected - across the University and Colleges, and a series of events will be held to mark LGBT+ History Month, which began on 1 February.

The annual celebration aims to promote equality and diversity by increasing the visibility of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people, their history, lives and their experiences - and some of those experiences will be featured in exhibitions, talks, and drop-in sessions organised by staff and students at the University.

Professor Andrew Webber, the University's LGBT+ Equality Champion, said: “LGBT+ History Month at Cambridge promises to be an intriguing mix of thoughtful debate and fun, in a variety of settings. From discussions on civil rights to queer crafts, the events taking place offer a unique opportunity to celebrate diversity and advance education on matters affecting the LGBT+ community.”

CEB fully supports this University wide initiative and, should any department members be interested in helping organise any events in the Department in celebration of LGBT community over the course of this month, please contact Elena Gonzalez on eg314@cam.ac.uk. We would very much welcome your ideas and feedback.
