LGBT+ History Month 2024

LGBT+ History Month logo

LGBT+ History Month is celebrated every February, recognising and shining a light on our shared history.

The theme for this year’s LGBT+ History Month is Medicine, celebrating the contribution of LGBT+ people in the field of medicine and healthcare. This is a very apt theme, given the recent pandemic and the valuable work our doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals have undertaken. According to a survey conducted in March 2020, 32,368 NHS staff declared themselves as LGBO (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual or Other).

We would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to all the healthcare professionals for all their hard work, whether they have been working in or outside of Buckinghamshire.
