Welcome to York LGBT+ History Month

Like many we've had a difficult few years and sadly have been unable to facilitate York LGBT History Month since 2020. In that time our stand alone charity has also folded due to lack of volunteers to keep things going. This wasn't a COVID related issue and has been an ongoing struggle for many years.

As a last ditch attempt solution the organisers of York Pride (and longest running York LGBT+ Charity) stepped in to keep things ticking over in the short term.

We are now starting to compile our programme for February 2022. We are aware COVID is still here but for the moment it's full steam ahead! As ever, we need your help to make it happen!

Our 2020 programme featured over 40 events with a great diversity of subjects and voices represented. Previous programmes have included a very broad range of events including craft workshops, dancing, discussions, exhibitions, films, plays, performances, exploration and commemoration of personal histories, religious services, social occasions (with and without alcohol), talks and more. We want to continue to bring a fabulous programme of local events and activities for the people of York and beyond. Could you be a part of this?

As always we welcome all submissions to the programme. For inspiration, see the 2019 programme on our events page and the 2014-2018 programmes on our previous years page.

If you’d like to put on an event please fill in this form by Friday 17th December:
