About the Festival

The City of Exeter is going to be an official hub for The National Festival of LGBT History, presented by Schools OUT UK.

We are very pleased to announce that for the first time Exeter will join hubs across the country including London, Liverpool, Manchester and our fellow South West hub, Bournemouth, as an official Festival of LGBT History city. 2017 is the 50th anniversary of the partial decriminalization of homosexuality in England and Wales and so the theme for the LGBT History Month in February 2017 will be ‘Law, Citizenship and PSHE’.

Throughout the month of February events across Exeter will explore the unique and diverse LGBT histories of the South West of England and beyond.
