Pre-Launch event of the LGBT History Month24 October 2011

LGBT History Month, celebrated every February is holding its pre-launch on 21 November 2011 at the Kia Oval/London.

The theme of LGBT History Month 2012, which will be celebrated by more than 1,000 events throughout the UK, is SPORT. In the year of the London Olympic Games, LGBT History Month encourages us to reflect on LGBT achievement in sport and explore the remaining barriers to LGBT participation in sport.

The free pre-launch event comprises a range of presentations, panel discussions and performances details of which can be found on the registration site. There is also an opportunity for organisations to display information by purchasing a stall at a price of £50.

Of particular interest may be the practical workshops delivered by Pride Sports running from 10am – 3pm. Pride Sports’ facilitators will lead two workshops, which will explore practical steps for engaging & retaining LGB and T people in sport and physical activity. One workshop will focus on sexual orientation and the other will focus on gender identity.
