LGBT+ History Month 2021

Today, Monday 1 February, marks the beginning of LGBT+ History Month.

LGBT+ History Month is an annual month-long observance of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT+) history, which aims to promote equality and diversity for the benefit of the public.

This is done by increasing the visibility of LGBT+ people by sharing their histories, lives and experiences, and by raising awareness and advancing education on matters affecting the LGBT+ community.

Those of us who identify as LGBT+ are more likely to develop mental health issues, such as low self-esteem, depression, anxiety, eating problems, misusing drugs and alcohol, self-harm or suicidal feelings.

Being LGBT+ does not cause these problems. The reasons those of us with LGBT+ identities are more likely to have them are complicated. But it is likely to do with facing things like homophobia, biphobia and transphobia, stigma and discrimination, difficult experiences of coming out, social isolation, exclusion and rejection.

This LGBT+ History Month, we want to remind people that our services are open to everyone.

If you’re struggling with your mental health, we are here for you. Find out more about our support here.
