Why do We Celebrate LGBT History Month?

To acknowledge and celebrate the lives and achievements of LGBT people, which until recently have been hidden. From this ignorance comes the prejudice that shows itself in homophobic bullying and negative discrimination, which is still prevalent today. By presenting an honest appraisal of LGBT lives we seek to replace ignorance with knowledge and understanding.
