Black History Month is a celebration of all Black life, including Black LGBTQ+ people, and your plans for the month should reflect this.
It's an opportunity for us all to better understand and highlight the work and contributions of Black LGBTQ+ people, which are too often forgotten and erased.
It's also a time to reflect on our own LGBTQ+ inclusion work, to better understand why Black LGBTQ+ people are expecting worse outcomes in the working world, in order to ensure that we're taking proactive steps to celebrate, represent and centre equality for Black LGBTQ+ people.
