LGBT History Month (#VTLGBTQHM) is a month-long observance of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer History. It includes reflection of the LGBTQ Social Justice Movement with roots stemming from what is commonly known as the Civil Rights Movement.

LGBTQ History Month spans from October 1-31 and is a time to reflect and honor those LGBTQ figures and events that have informed the current socio-cultural climate while engaging in dialogue that frames a plan for how to reinforce a momentum of change.

Please see the 2016 LGBTQ History Month at Virginia Tech website for a list of events happening in October that celebrate LGBTQ History Month. And share your stories and pics using #VTLGBTQHM.
