forum+ is planning for Camden and Islington LGBT History Month 2024, and we invite all the community to join us in celebrating local LGBTQ+ culture, heritage and history.

The first LGBT History Month was celebrated in February 2005 and LGBT History Month continues to be a vital annual celebration of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and trans history.

The celebrations take place during the month of February and forum+ is seeking submissions for the Camden and Islington 2024 programme.

Last year’s programme featured over 40 events with a great diversity of subjects and voices represented.

Previous programmes have included a very broad range of events including craft workshops, discussions, exhibitions, films, guided walks, plays, performances, commemorations of local LGBTQ figures, talks and much more!

The theme for LGBT History Month 2024 is Medicine (

The theme of Medicine will be an opportunity to celebrate the work and lives of LGBT healthcare professionals who have made significant contributions to the field of medicine. 

The 2024 programme will spotlight the stories of historical challenges and discrimination that LGBT people have experienced in healthcare settings.

Let’s make LGBT History Month 2024 a time to celebrate LGBT culture and a time to champion inclusion and equality for LGBT people living in the UK today.

If you are planning an event in Camden or Islington for LGBT History Month we would love to hear about it!

Activities and events will be included as part of the main programme and promoted via forum+ social media channels. Submissions to the programme are welcome regardless of whether they are on the 2024 theme of Medicine or not.

If you are interested in organising an event based in Camden and Islington please email for a submission form. The deadline for submissions is Friday, December 15.
