The Month of Love 🧡

The Month of Love 🧡

February is known as LGBT+ History Month, a time to celebrate the history, achievements, and contributions of the LGBTQ+ community. But why do we celebrate it in February? And why is it important to do so?

What is the significance of February?

February was chosen as LGBT+ History Month to coincide with the birthdays of two prominent figures in the LGBTQ+ rights movement: Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass. Both of these individuals fought for equality and justice, making February a fitting month to honour their legacies.

Why is it important to celebrate?

Celebrating LGBT+ History Month is crucial for raising awareness, promoting acceptance, and fostering inclusivity. By recognizing the struggles and triumphs of the LGBTQ+ community, we can work towards creating a more tolerant and understanding society for all.

How can we connect with our children?

It's important to have open and honest conversations with children about LGBT+ history and the importance of diversity. By educating them about different identities and experiences, we can help them develop empathy, respect, and acceptance towards others.
