February is LGBT History Month here in the UK and there are tons of events all around the UK (I’ve pasted some links below – but do google “LGBT history month + where you live” for events in your area). Here at Queer YA, I will try to post very regularly about a bunch of books and films and other cultural awesomeness that is happening this month. Do give me a shout if you want to participate! I’ll update this post with the links as I go along.
