The Best Remote Events For LGBTQ+ Month

25th February 2021 | 2 min read

February is LGBTQ+ History Month, a yearly month-long celebration of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender history, and the history of the gay rights and civil rights movements. This gives us all a chance to reflect on the struggles, hard work and achievements that the LGBTQ+ community has made over the years, as well as help to continue the fight, addressing current issues and challenges to the movement. 

Although workplaces and flexible and serviced offices may not be able to celebrate in the usual way this year, there are plenty of remote events set to inspire, educate and bring people together. Choose from a great mix of historical, cultural, and entertaining events, for people who want to learn more about the movement, and for the LGBTQ+ community to celebrate their identity. So, read on to discover our top selection of remote events for LGBTQ+ month.
