LGBT+ History Month 2024

This year we are joining the LGBT Community in "Claiming our past, Celebrating our present, Creating our future!"

Drawing inspiration from this year’s theme of “Claiming our past, Celebrating our present, Creating our future” we look into practical ways you can further your knowledge and pay homage to LGBT+ icons of history.




  • We’re here… exhibition @ Jubilee Library 

Monday 5 February to Saturday 2 March, Jubilee Library window gallery

Monday 12 February to Saturday 2 March, Jubilee Library foyer gallery

We’re Here…is a special portfolio of artwork, poetry and photography produced by LGBTQI+ creatives.

The exhibition brings together retrospective group collections from Writing Our Legacy, Otherwise Engaged and PRONOUNced, alongside new work by individuals from a cross-section of ages, nationalities, cultures, abilities and lived experiences – creatively presenting their perspectives.

No need to book, just pop in!
