Today marks the start of LGBT History Month.
The overall aim of LGBT+ History month is to promote equality and diversity for the benefit of the public.
Some of the ways that this can be done is by:
- Increasing the visibility of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (“LGBT+”) people, their history, lives and their experiences in the curriculum and culture of educational and other institutions, and the wider community.
- Raising awareness and advancing education on matters affecting the LGBT+ community.
- Working to make educational and other institutions safe spaces for all LGBT+ communities.
- Promoting the welfare of LGBT+ people, by ensuring that the education system recognises and enables LGBT+ people to achieve their full potential, so they contribute fully to society and lead fulfilled lives, thus benefiting society as a whole.
Here at Cygnus Support, we are proud to support the LGBT+ Community.
