History teacher Rodney Wilson started LGBT History Month in America in 1994. As a teacher he’d taught about Black history, about Women’s history, and he knew there also needed to be some dedication for LGBT history to prevent this important information becoming erased.
In 2005 Schools Out UK initiated the first LGBT history month in the UK. Here the month of February was chosen, in recognition of the removal of Section 28 in February 2003.
