LGBTQ History Month

LGBTQ History Month

LGBTQ History Month is a month-long celebration that occurs in October to observe lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender history. It also honors the history of gay rights. National Coming Out Day is also part of LGBTQ History Month. LGBTQ History Month was first celebrated in the United States in 1994. It was first known as Lesbian and Gay History Month, the coordinating committee added bisexual to the title and later transgender. Gay and Lesbian Pride Month is another LGBTQ event which is celebrated in June.
