February 2023

Lesbian Gay Bisexual Trans History Month
Suicide Prevention Month

This month focuses on LGBTQIA+ history month and also on suicide prevention.

LGBTQIA+ History Month is an annual month-long observance of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender history, and the history of the gay rights and related civil rights movements. Every year, London Metropolitan University celebrates LGBTQIA+ month by holding various events to celebrate the community and the movement. 

Suicide rates increase during the winter period where there are lengthy periods of isolation. We raise awareness in the rates of suicide in Trans people of colour where rates are the highest. 

If you or anyone need support, get in touch via our 24-hour mental health service.
