This February, the University and city partners are hosting a range of events and learning opportunities to celebrate LGBT+ History Month.
LGBT+ History Month is an annual celebration of the histories, experiences, struggles and culture of people within the LGBTQ+ community.
This year’s official LGBT+ History Month theme is ‘Politics In Art: ‘The Arc Is Long’, which shares an affinity with this quote from Martin Luther King, Jr. “the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice” and acts a reminder for us to consider the importance of intersectionality.
In this online event chaired by Kieran McGuire, Senior Teacher, University of Liverpool Management School, representatives from Liverpool Football Club (LFC) fans and supporters groups will discuss and debate the development of LGBTQ+ fans and Kop Outs (the LGBTQ+ Supporters Group of LFC) with a focus on our allies.
A wide range of topics will be covered, touching on the changing attitudes of football to LGBTQ+ people, how inclusive it is now, or could be, and how football, and LFC in particular stand up for its LGBTQ+ employees and fans.
Over the past 40 years the political and societal attitudes towards lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans people have changed beyond recognition. Developed in 2012, The PINKBRICK project charts these changes from the University’s perspective, by looking at official University and Guild records, along with memories of past staff and students.
For our diverse LGBTQ+ student community on campus, the Guild will be offering opportunities for you to connect with others, explore resources and find support if you need it.
This month come along to an event, expand your reading and watch lists, connect with LGBTQ+ students on campus and explore areas of history that have often been forgotten from mainstream education.
Come and find out what LGBTQIA+ resources you can find in our libraries.
Where: Drop-in to the Leisure Reading area, Ground Floor, Harold Cohen Library and/or the Foyer, Sydney Jones Library.
When: Running till 28 February 2022
Take a walk around these collections that reflect historic and contemporary LGBT+ life, experiences and culture and offer new interpretations of the material from Walker Art Gallery, Museum of Liverpool, Lady Lever Art Gallery and Sudley House.
Watch Senior Teacher, Kieran McGuire, discuss how coming out can affect a player’s earnings in this recent Channel 4 documentary.
