February is LGBT History Month 🏳️‍🌈

What is LGBT History Month?

LGBT History Month is celebrated every February and recognises the struggles faced by the LGBT community, as well as the events that have shaped today’s society.

As a nation it’s important to celebrate LGBT History Month as it helps to encourage acceptance and inclusivity. Although we have moved forward in the fight for equality, there is still vast room for improvement. Sadly, we live in a world where people are persecuted for their sexuality, and in some countries, criminalised for it — one day, we hope this will change.

The achievements of LGBTQ+ people are often overlooked too, particularly in the school curriculum. So, when our Design and Editorial Team suggested we create a series of books to celebrate and educate young children about the LGBTQ+ community, their struggles and their achievements, we thought it was a great idea, and our award-winning series Pride In was created.

We are very proud to have an inclusive workforce at BookLife, where all our team members are treated equally, are appreciated and most importantly, are respected. We’re proud to say that our Pride In series was created by both members and allies of the LGBTQ+ community.
