Celebrating LGBT+ History Month

February is LGBT+ History Month, an opportunity to increase the visibility of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT+) people, their history, lives and their experiences. To mark the month, we’re sharing stories from some of our famous LGBT+ alumni, Oxford's LGBT lectures and podcasts and what's going on around the University to celebrate.
