February of each year has been set aside in the UK to mark and celebrate the lives and achievements of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans people.
LGBT people have often hidden themselves in society for their own safety and have also frequently been ignored by others for their achievements and contributions. The month will begin to rectify that.
Because the lives and achievements of LGBT people have been hidden, it has been easy for others to stereotype and distort the reality of their lives. From this ignorance comes the prejudice that shows itself in homophobic bullying and negative discrimination. By presenting an honest appraisal of LGBT lives we seek to replace ignorance with knowledge and understanding.
Check out the LGBT History website ( www. lgbthistorymonth .org.uk )or the LGBT History Month stand in the Confetti café on Tuesday 9 th February for more information and to show your support!
Tickets to the Valentine Masquerade Ball will also be on sale.
From Monday 22 nd February (week after half term), Facebook and YouTube will be blocked on the LRC computers. This is in response to a large number of requests from students who have been unable to access a machine to complete course work.
If you would like to check your emails or use Facebook or YouTube, the computers in the student cafe are being updated over half term to allow access with your Confetti username and password.
