UK Celebrates LGBT History Month
LGBT History Month is a month-long annual observance of LGBT history. In the United States it is observed during October, including National Coming Out Day on October 11th. In the UK, it is observed during February to coincide with a major celebration of the 2005 abolition of Section 28 that, in part, prohibited schools from discussing LGBT issues.
February 2009 marks the fifth celebration of LGBT History Month in the UK. The Month, which celebrates the lives and achievements of the LGBT community, has received accolades from all and sundry including Government Ministers, the Attourney General, artists and performers, trades unions, journalists, librarians, teachers and of course the general public.

Correction: "...2005 abolition of Section 28...", should read "...2003 abolition of Section 28...".
