LGBT+ History Month in Stockport 2021 - all virtual, all-singing, all-dancing 28 days of virtual fun and learning.

8 local organisations (Forward, SMBC Libraries, People Like Us Stockport, Stockport NHS Foundation Trust, Stockport Pride, Healthwatch Stockport, The Proud Trust, NEXUS and Nationwide) have come together to bring you a month of festivities based on the theme of Body, Mind, Spirit. 

Activities include: a live cupcake bake-off, chemistry experiments, yoga, boxing, plastic recycling workshops, mindfulness, intersectional discussions on faith, age, gender, race, disability & sexuality, comedy, poetry open mic night, drag queen bingo, youth talent show, resilience workshop and lots more!

Goody bags will be available from selected COVID-secure locations across the borough and they will contain; a bathbomb & Skittles (for an experiment), cupcake kit (for live baking), Let's End Hate Crime resources, wellbeing factsheet and activity suggestions, wellbeing calendar, programme of events and more...

LGBT+ History Month's own motto is "claim our past, celebrate our present and create our future". We hope that every conversation that is held during the month is used as a catalyst for further work and acceptance. 

We feel that it is important now, more than ever, to bring together the LGBTQ+ community and our allies - to show that we care and that we are stronger together.
