The first week of February and LGBT+ History Month was certainly off to quite the start. Grab yourself some biscuits, put the kettle on and join me on looking back on some of the highlights.
The return of our fave Californian queers

All things LGBT+ History Month
Brighton and Hove’s oldest LGBTQI charity, Switchboard, launched a Crowdfunder to help our LGBTQI community recover from the devastating impact resulting from the pandemic.
Listen to and amplify intersex voices

Oh and whilst we’re talking about podcasts…
