and live on Freeview channel 276
Every year, LGBT History Month is celebrated in February in the UK to promote awareness and encourage education around LGBTQ+ culture and history.
Across the UK, organisations are putting on special events to educate on specific issues around LGBTQ+ culture.
Schools will also be dedicating time and resources to teaching children and teenagers about LGBTQ+ issues.
This comes after Scotland became the first country in the world to embed lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender inclusive education across the school curriculum.
No matter what age you are, there’s always more to learn about LGBTQ+ history and plenty of ways to get involved this month.
Here’s what you need to know about LGBT History Month 2022 celebrations in Edinburgh.
