LGBT history month

Since humanist author James Baldwin's time, much has changed for LGBT people around the world - particularly in Europe and the Americas. It was a long road getting here.

It's important that we celebrate that long history, that struggle for equality - one that in many ways, and in many parts of the world, is is still ongoing. History can teach us a lot. If we listen, it can tell us how to avoid the mistakes of the past. It can teach us about human nature, and show us the way to future successes.

Our vision for the future is of a world free from discrimination, in which everyone is treated equally before the law - no matter their race, ethnicity, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability status, or religion or belief. This month, we celebrate a major plank of that journey towards recognising the equal dignity of every member of the human family.
