LGBTQ+ History Month

LGBTQ+ History Month

October 1st-31st

History

October is Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) History Month in the United States. It was first observed in 1994. October was selected because it coincides with National Coming Out Day on October 11, and because it is the month of the first March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights in 1979. More recently, in October 2010, Spirit Day was established in response to a string of high-profile teen suicides that year. The goal is to raise awareness about bullying of LGBT youth.
