Black History Month x Stonewall

Celebrating Black History Month by sharing experiences of Black LGBTQ+ people.

Black History Month is an opportunity for us to highlight the work and contributions of Black LGBTQ+ people, which are too often forgotten and erased from history.

Black people have always been at the centre of the LGBTQ+ liberation movement, from Marsha P. Johnson and Stormé DeLarverie, who were major figures in the Stonewall uprisings of 1969, to modern day leaders like Munroe Bergdorf and Lady Phyll.

All year-round, we aim to highlight the incredible contributions that Black LGBTQ+ people and Black LGBTQ-led organisations are making throughout the UK, as well as sharing the impact of queer Black activism.

This year’s theme for Black History Month is ‘Saluting Our Sisters', honouring the vital roles Black women have played in shaping history, inspiring change, and building communities.
