The theme of LGBT+ History Month this year is ‘Politics is Art. The Arc is Long.’
Inspired by the Martin Luther King quote:
The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends towards justice.
The quote is thought to mean that although it is taking a long time, we’re curving/moving towards social justice and fairness.
It’s so important this month for us to share experiences and stories, raising awareness about issues faced by LGBT+ people today, and highlighting what we can do for each other to make sure issues are acknowledged and tackled.
There are events happening all across the country and online as part of LGBT+ History Month. From film screenings to walking tours, drag life drawing classes to virtual coffee & chats, there’s something for everyone. And so much to learn!
